Visit Badrinath Temple - Baikunth Dham of Hindu Religion

The town of Badrinath is where divinity meets with the serenity of nature. It is a kind of pilgrimage centre which does not need any description. It is one of the four most famous shrines of India. This religious town of Hindus is situated in the Chamoli district of Uttarakhand state between the Nar and Naryan mountain ranges. The Badrinath temple is the main delight in the town. It is visited by thousands of flocks of tourists as it is the one of the Char Dhams. Here, Lord Vishnu is worshipped as lord Badri. It is one of the Panch Badri which are namely as Yogadhyan Badri, bhavishya badri, bridha badri (old badri) and Adi Badri.

According to legends, Adi Shankaracharya found a black ‘Shaligram’ stone idol of lord Badrinath in the Alaknanda River in the 9th century. Initially, he enshrined it in a cave near the Tapt Kund (hot water spring). But later in the 16th century the king of Garhwal shifted the statue in a present shrine. The architecture of this temple resembles of Buddhist Vihara with the brightly painted facade. Besides the idol of lord Badri the temple complex houses 15 more statues of other gods and goddesses, all statues are made with black stone as well.

As per its mythological story, lord Vishnu was doing penance at this place, being unaware of cold weather. So, goddess Lakshmi, the wife of lord Vishnu, protected him in the form of the Badri tree (Indian Date). Impressed by the devotion of goddess, lord Vishnu named this place Badrika Ashram.

Joshimath is the winter abode of lord Badri as the main shrine remains close during winters due to the heavy snowfall in the region. Devotees visit this place during the closing period of the main shrine. The temple opens in the late April or in the first week of May on the auspicious day of Akshaya Tritya. It is advisable to carry heavy woollen clothes during the visit as the weather can be too chilly.
