Badrinath Temple, Badrinath

4.7
#1 of 8 in Things to do in Badrinath
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.
