Pack Name:Badrinath


Subcategory:Uttarakhand Char Dham


One of the famous sites of the Chardham Yatra, the Badrinath Dham draws devotees with unwavering faith to Chamoli district of Uttarakhand. The pious Badrinath Yatra is simply manifested as a way to attain salvation (Moksha) from the cycle of Life and Death. The ancient mythology designates Badrinath Mandir as an indispensable Hindu shrine to be visited once in a lifetime with the legend of meditation of Lord Vishnu for complete 1000 years under a Badri Tree for the welfare of humanity. Ever since then devotees consider this place to be sacred. A deity of Lord Badrinath in the meditative pose has been established to be worshipped and paid homage to. The one-meter tall imposing statuette of Lord Vishnu that is reckoned to be one of eight Swayam Vyakta Kshetras or self-manifested statues sits in the Nar Narayan temple. The sacred Badrinath Temple, which is also the part of major Chardham circuit is situated at an elevation of 3133 m along the bank of River Alaknanda. Badrinath or Badrinarayan Temple is also one of the 108 Divya Desams dedicated to Vishnu, and thus an important pilgrimage for Vaishnavites. This pilgrimage site in Uttarakhand remains open for the devotees for half of the year from onset of summers and closes with the end of the autumn season.
