Badrinath Chardham Yatra
Located in the Chamoli district of Uttrakhand, Badrinath is popularly known as the holy town. A Sanskrit name, Badrinath is named after an Indian tree – Jujube tree. Known as one of the pilgrimage sites- Badrinath is a part of the chardham yatra.
The chardham yatra is considered highly auspicious and a must-visit by the Hindus at least once in their lifetime. The chardham sites include– Badrinath, Kedarnath, Gangotri, and Yamunotri, all of which lies in the foothills of Himalayas. As each of the chardham yatra sites has it’s own legendary and history, how the four sites are circuited together is still unknown.
The badrinath chardham yatra was re-established in the 7th century as a chardham yatra by Adi Shankara. The badrinath chardham yatra is a long stretch of journey through the hilly terrain. People like sadhus and others are dedicated and walk miles taking the strenuous journey to the Badrinath Temple.
The Badrinath Temple is the center of attention in the town. It is the Hindu Temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu. The temple is considered saintly by the Hindus as they believe the statue is a self-manifested statue of Lord Vishnu. As a part of the chardham yatra, the Badrinath Temple is a part of the five related Vishnu shrines called Panch Badri.
While visiting badrinath chardham yatra, the Mata Murti ka Mela is considered as a prominent festival. It begins with the descent of river Ganga on mother earth. The festival is celebrated in a huge way with people visiting it from all corners of the country and world. Celebrated for eight days, you even witness artists and celebrities visiting the holy land. Several godly and religious activities are performed during the eight days in the temple. The blessings are divine and all rituals are performed in front of all the devotees.
The badrinath chardham yatra or badrinath temple is open for six months every year (from the end of April until the beginning of November), and it closes in winter months. On the last day of the temple visit, the temple is closed with the lighting of the Akhanda Jyoti. The lamp is filled with ghee and is kept to light for six months until the next opening. The sight is delightful and thousands of devotees and pilgrims gather on the first day of the temple opening to witness the Akhanda Jyoti.
The badrinath chardham yatra is considered one of the holiest places, and pilgrims visit the temple to worship the Lord and take a dip in the holy water of the Alaknanda river. This sanctified dip in the holy river purifies the soul.

About Badrinath Dham Tourism:
Badrinath Dham India is dedicated to the devotion of Lord Vishnu. According to a hilarious story, Lord Vishnu usurped this place from Shiva. Vishnu once came to this place to offer penance. He fell in love with the place so much that he planned to unseat Shiva. He appeared as a beautiful child and began to wail. Shiva’s wife, Parvati, picked him up but could not sooth the child. His weeping continuously disturbed Shiva, he shifted from Badrinath to/and Kedarnath in frustration, leaving the place empty for Vishnu to occupy. Legend also say that, when the Ganga was requested to come down to earth to help the pain of humanity, the earth was not capable of holding the strength of its fall. Therefore, Ganga was divided into 12 sacred channels. Alaknanda was one of them that later became the abode of Lord Vishnu or Badrinath.
The Badrinath temple is one of five associated shrines called Panch Badri that are devoted to Lord Vishnu.
