The Temple has been renovated several times due to damage by avalanches. The present structure is 15 mtrs high and has a gilded cupola. The rawal or chief priest of the temple is a Namboodripad Brahmin from Kerala. 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. Badrinath is depicted sitting in the padmasana ('lotus posture'), in which the feet are placed on opposite thighs. He is surrounded by a host of gods.

 

The most important ones amongst these are Kubera, the God of Wealth, and Ganesha, the God of Wisdom and Prosperity. Within the temple complex is another shrine dedicated to Laksmi, the Goddess of Fortune. This shrine is situated to the left of the main temple building. The front portion is painted in red. Outside the exit door of the Badrinath Temple is the seating place of Shankaracharya, who meditated here.

 

The temple remains closed during winter. 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. Especially attractive is the one metre high image of Badrinath, finely sculpted in black stone. It represents lord Vishnu seated in a meditative pose.

    Me and my Wife recently made the Char Dham Yatra starting from New Delhi on 7th Oct. and completed on 20th Oct. We had a wonderful time and were able to experience the beautiful un-spoilt Natural beauty of Uttarakhand. All the darshans, especially Kedarnath and Badrinath went off without a hitch. I want to specially thank our tour Manager Sri.S.Krishna for being our friend and guide for these 15days. His organization of the tour, inspite of the early morning calls were very useful and enabled us to reach our destinations early and without rush hour traffic and have unhurried darshans at many shrines. The support staff also need to be much appreciated; excellent driving by the Drivers; timely and tasty meals cooked by the culinary staff and the arduous but efficient loading and unloading of the many and heavy luggage. Thank you Anandvihari for a wonderful experience. ...more

    The service was good but... I booked a Inova for 7 days for Kedarnath, Badrinath tour. The vehicle and driver was good. but there were some perception difference on how the trip would be managed. If you are taking vehicle to go on your terms, stay where you want etc.; it is essential that your get that discussed with the driver in front of Mr Tayal or who ever is booking before you start your journey. Any kind of misunderstanding with the driver will spoil the charm of your journey. ...more

    We are from Bangalore. We had a week long program @ Rishikesh, but we want to go early and plan to visit Badrinath before the program starts. We were searching in net and got know about your org and called. Immediately we got the response and it was very professional.But we were skeptical about the plan. Driver came to Haridwar with placard on time and he took us to Badrinath. Driver Ajay was very quite and calm and took us to all the places. We were very happy with your organization..... You organization is really amazing and rocks..... ...more
