This is of supreme significance for several reasons. Adi Sankara lived in a cave very near to this for five years. His Himalayan genius was blossomed only here, as evidenced by his founding of monasteries and erecting of temples together with the dedication of his works to the Lord, when be dwelt here fully immersed in meditation and composition of master pieces. So, sacred to all. There is a temple dedicated to Narasimha in which Badarinath is worshipped during the winter. It is on the way to Badari and no pilgrim worth the name misses this holy place. The place where he lived is made into a mandir with idols of Siva and other Saivate gods. Even at Badari, where he established one of the Principal monasteries called Uttaram nya Jyotirmath, there is a Sivalinga along with other gods like Subrahmanya, Ganesh and Gowri. They are adored regularly and devoutly.
