Uttaranchal Temples >> Badrinath Temple

Thousands travel to Garhwal every year, worshippers on pilgrimages come here to realize their God, climbers with mountaineering and trekking on their minds, mavericks with river running in their blood, skiers to get the adrenaline pumping and academicians to propound new theories on mankind! You can find your own interpretation, your own Garhwal headspace to retreat into when you need some soul food.

Garhwal is often called devbhumi or the abode of gods. Every inch of this land is steeped in mythology and every glade has its story. The reason is not far to seek as the Ganga and the Yamuna – the alpha and omega of the Indian psyche – have their origin here.

In its mountains and along these sacred rivers lie important Hindu shrines dating back centuries. Badrinath, Kedarnath, Gangotri and Yamunotri are some of the prominent pilgrim centres. And we are one of the best pilgrimage tour operator in Uttaranchal

The temple’s present structure was built by the Kings of Garhwal about two centuries ago.The temple has three sections - Garbhagriha (Sanctum), The Darshan Mandap, and Sabha Mandap. The Garbhagriha (Sanctum) houses Lord Badri Narayan, Kuber (God of wealth), Narad Rishi, Uthavar, Nar & Narayan.

Lord Badri Narayan (also called as Badri Vishal) is armed with Shankh (Conch) and Chakra in two arms in a lifted posture and two arms rested on the lap in Yogamudra.The principal image is of black stone and it represents Vishnu seated in meditative pose. The temple also houses Garuda (Vahana – vehicle of Lord Narayan) and Goddess Mahalaxmi.
