Shri Badrinath Ji Temple, Badrinath

Set against dramatic snow-capped peaks, Shri Badrinath Ji 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.

  • The name of the Badrinath tirtha originates from the local word badri which is a type of a wild berry. It is said that when Lord Vishnu sat in penance in these mountains, His consort Goddess Laxmi took the form of a berry tree and shaded Him from the harsh sun. It is not only the dwelling place of the Lord Himself but also home to countless pilgrims, saints and sages, who meditate here in search of enlightenment.
