Badrinath Temple

Badrinath Temple All Information

Badrinath Temple is one of the four significant pilgrims (Chardham) of Hindus. The temple, located on the hills near the river Alaknanda, is dedicated to Lord Vishnu. The temple has been mentioned in the 108 Divya Desams of Lord Vishnu.

More than 10,279 feet of the height, along with the surrounding snow, provides the heavenly experience to all the visitors. It is said that saint Adi Shankaracharya originally established the temple at the mountain peak, where he worshipped one of the eight self-manifested idols of Lord Vishnu.

The line, ‘first impression is the last impression’ perfectly fits the Badrinath Temple as the main entrance or the “Singhdwar” is beautifully decorated with vibrant colours. The walls, as well as the pillars, are carved with fascinating statues of lord Vishnu and several other divine figures.

History and Secrets of Badrinath Temple

There is a story about Badrinath Temple. It is believed that Lord Shiva and his wife, Goddess Parvati used to live at the place we now know as Badrinath.

Once the couple went for a walk, when they returned, they were amazed to see a baby crying at the entrance of their place. Parvati, who could not see a child crying, decided to take him inside and fed him with food and maternal love ignoring Lord Shiva’s warning.

After this, Shiva and Parvati left the child at home as they had to be somewhere. They were shocked to see that the child had closed the doors from inside to let both of them find a new residence at Kedarnath.
