The Badrinath temple is the pride of this temple town. Located at a breathtaking altitude of 11,268 ft on the banks of the Alaknanda, the temple is ensconced between the snowcapped Nar and Narayan peaks of the Himalayas. Heaven is surely within reach here! Badrinath derives its name from the wild berries of Badri which grow profusely in this region. Adi Shankarcharya (509-477 BC) is believed to have built the temple and installed the idol of Lord Vishnu here in the 8th century. Contiguous to the temple and scattered around the region are several thermal springs — Tapta Kund, Narad Kund and Surya Kund, associated with remedial and religious significance. Badrinath is considered the holiest of the four important shrines (Char Dham) in Garhwal.
