Badrinath Temple

The very famous and important temple that is located in Uttarakhand in India along the river Alkananda, the Badrinath Temple is one of the holiest temples of the Hindu religion. This temple is dedicated to Lord Vishnu and is one of the four Char Dham pilgrimage sites.
Along with the statue of Lord Vishnu as Lord Badrinarayan which is one metre tall, fifteen other gods and their statues are worshipped in the Badrinath Temple. Adi Shankara is said to have found this metre tall statue of Badrinarayan made out of Saligram stone in Alaknanda River and Adi Shankara was the one to enshrine the statue near Tapt Kund which are hot springs and made this place as a pilgrimage. The Badrinath Temple opens for six months in a year from end of April to beginning of November and after the temple closes, the statue is moved to nearby Jyotirmath.
