Badrinath Temple

The Chardam Of India: Badrinath Dham Temple Tour Packages


The Vishnu temple of Badrinath is located 298 kms from Rishikesh and 48 km from Joshimath . This holy town nestles at a height of 3,133 metres, at the site where a forest of Badri (berry) trees, known as the mythical Badrivan, once covered the area.

The Badrinath Dham Yatra Tour Package, offered by Shivshankar Tirth Yatra, presents an extraordinary journey to the revered Badrinath shrine. Originally built by the 9th-century saint Shankara, this sacred temple has witnessed several reconstructions due to avalanches and snowfall. Standing tall at 15 meters, the wooden structure is crowned with a gilded dome. Before the temple gates open each year, the exteriors come alive with vibrant colors, creating a striking contrast against the surrounding grey concrete buildings and majestic mountain slopes. The temple resembles a Tibetan gompa from a distance, exuding a sense of spirituality and grandeur. The head priest of Badrinath, associated with the Namboodiri Brahmin caste from Kerala, also holds the same position in Kedarnath, adding to the cultural significance of the pilgrimage. Adjacent to the temple, pilgrims can find the Tapt Kund and Surya Kund, hot sulfur springs where they take a ritual dip for spiritual purification. Located south of the temple, the ancient village of Badrinath offers a glimpse into the region's rich heritage. As you embark on the Badrinath Dham Yatra Tour Package with Shivshankar Tirth Yatra, immerse yourself in the divine atmosphere, where the glorious temple, awe-inspiring surroundings, and age-old traditions converge, creating an unforgettable pilgrimage experience.

24 kms from Badrinath is the famous site of Govindghat, the confluence of the Alaknanda with the Lakshmanganga. This is also the entry point for the mystical Valley of Flowers and the Sikh shrine of Hemkund Sahib. The Vasuki Tal at a height of 4,135 metres is 8 kms from Badrinath. Besides the main shrine of Badrinath, there are four other shrines that together form the Panch Badri or five Badris. Bhavishya Badri is believed to be the future Badrinath shrine, which will be used once thepresent shrine site is blocked when the twin peaks of Jay and Vijay join together.

All tourists should be careful of cheats in the form of seers and saints. They usually dupe the tourists with both their money and other belongings. One should always keep an eye out for the frauds, who also exploit the religious and spiritual sentiments of the visitors for immoral motives.
