History of Badrinath

Shri Badrinarayan temple located in Uttarakhand is one of the Chota Char Dhams of Uttarakhand along with Kedarnath, Gangotri and Yamunotri. Also known as Badrinath or Badri Vishal, this temple has the unique distinction of being part of the other Char Dhams along with Jagannath Puri, Rameshwaram and Dwarka.

Badrinarayan temple was established by Adi Shankaracharya in the 8th century after he found a Shaligram idol of Lord Badrinarayan in the Alaknanda river. He enshrined this idol in a cave near Tapt Kund. The King of Garhwal shifted the idol to a temple he built on the present site in the 16th century. In those days pilgrims used to walk hundreds of miles through difficult terrain to reach this temple.

Since then the temple has been destroyed several times by floods and earthquakes and rebuilt each time. The name Badri comes from the abundant badri bushes growing in the area. When Lord Vishnu was meditating here Mata Lakshmi took the form of a Vishal (Giant) Badri bush to protect him from the scorching sun, hence the name – Badri-Vishal.

The Pandavas passed through Badrinath on their way to heaven. This is also where Rishi Ved Vyas wrote the Mahabharata in a cave in Mana. It is written in the Padma Purana that the area of Badrinath is a trove of spiritual treasures.
