Shri Badrinath Ji Temple, Badrinath

#1 of 11 in Things to do in Badrinath
Religious Site · Tourist Spot
Set against dramatic snow-capped peaks, Shri Badrinath Ji Temple stands at 3,133 m (10,279 ft) above sea level. Dating back to the 8th century, the temple complex makes an appearance in certain holy texts, and remains a major site of pilgrimage. Observe the shrine's artfully rendered and colorful facade, and look for the image of Badrinarayan depicted in a 1 m (3.3 ft) black stone statue holding a conch and a wheel. Other black-stone idols adorn the complex, which also contains a natural hot spring where the faithful bathe before entering the temple. Be prepared for a long drive and the physical demands of the altitude; consider visiting with a private guide or tour operator. Note the site is only open six months of the year, from April to November, due to weather extremes.

  • I have visited this place on numerous occasions . It's very religious place once you visit there you will feel like out of this world. There are lots of places which you can visit around theTemple by trekking. Environment over here is amazing as you would feel that you are in the lap of nature.
  • full of positivity.. had a very good luck of visiting this temple, with no rush whatsoever.. also has a couple hot water ponds.. separate for men and (also closed) for women.. where people bath which can absorb all the tiredness from your body and freshens you in a quick time.. hope this review helps somehow..
