On the right bank of Alaknanda lies the sacred spot perched at an altitude of
3,133 meters above the sea level. Encircled by a beautiful valley, the 15 mts.
high temple is dedicated to Lord Vishnu. It is built in the form of a cone with
a small cup of a ilt bull and spire.
Built by adi guru Shankaracharya the philosopher-saint of the 8th century, the temple has been renovated several times due to damage by avalanches. Its colourful 'singh dwara' or the main entrance gate give it a new, modern look.
The temple is divided into three parts the 'garbha griha' or sanctum sanctorum, the 'darshan mandap' where the rituals are conducted and the 'sabha mandap' Where devotees assemble. The complex has 15 idols. Specially attractive is the one metre high image of Sri Badrinathji, finely sculpted in black stone. It represents lord Vishnu seated in a meditative pose.
