Badrinath Temple, Badrinath
(4.7/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Set against dramatic snow-capped peaks, Badrinath Temple stands at 3,133 m (10,279 ft) above sea level. Dating back to the 8th century, the temple complex makes an appearance in certain holy texts, and remains a major site of pilgrimage. Observe the shrine's artfully rendered and colorful facade, and look for the image of Badrinarayan depicted in a 1 m (3.3 ft) black stone statue holding a conch and a wheel. Other black-stone idols adorn the complex, which also contains a natural hot spring where the faithful bathe before entering the temple. Be prepared for a long drive and the physical demands of the altitude; consider visiting with a private guide or tour operator. Note the site is only open six months of the year, from April to November, due to weather extremes. To visit Badrinath Temple on your trip to Badrinath, use our Badrinath vacation builder.

  • One of the most sacred Hindu temple in the world for Lord vishnu one must see the in their life time and have the blessings of Lord vishnu To go and come back to badrinath isgreat
  • Large amount of tourist , nice view of glaciers can be seen. Wonderful sunrise and sunset view. Moon light is also wonderful.. But should have lot of patience in standing in line. Best place to take photos
  • Kiun ki badrinath bhagban ko bahut manta hun...or kub jaun unke pass..unka dor lageka kub....bahut pasand karta hun...
  • This is a very beautiful devasthan .But we need supervision to keep it pollution free and stop indiscriminate new buildings . All pilgrims should be expressly careful not to.damage the place by littering and byn over using plastic wrappers and bottles. I have seen people not only bathing in the tsptakund but lathering themselves with soap and letting the water flow into the alokananda.If the river is considered sacred then why do we allow waste to flow into it?
  • Best Place on Earth For anyone to visit & also awesome place for Dhyana(Meditation). Most Honest people/staffs stay there, in the temple. Starting from the Puja Shop Vendors, PhotoGraphers, Priests, Pujaris, Acharyas Everyone will greet you with a smile as their personal Guest. Planning to visit in next year.
