Badrinath Temple-Devbhoomi, India

Badrinath temple is in the Land of the Gods or Devbhoomi in Uttarakhnad, India.  The temple is one of the most visited religious sites of the Hindus, and is dedicated to Lord Vishnu. It is open from May to November.  It is more than 10,000 feet above sea level, along the banks of the Alaknanda river.

The imain deity worshipped in the temple is a statue of Vishnu in the form of Badrinarayan.  Tapt Kund is an area that has natural, ever flowing sulphur hot springs next to Badrinath Temple, enclosed inside the bath house, with separate areas for men and women. The waters are considered medicinal. The Nar mountain is behind the temple, while the Narayana mountain is on the opposite side, with the turbulent waters of the Alaknanda river dividing them. The prophecy states that these two mountains will join some day, and the temple will be shifted to the Bhavishay Badrinath Temple (mentioned in an earlier blog). Jai Badri Vishal, the temple has to be seen to be believed.
