BADARINATH
The Himalayan abode of Sri Maha Vishnu

THE TEMPLE

The holy shrine is built at a height of 45 feet, on the right tank of Alakananda; and it faces East. Its exterior is quite imposing with shining gold kalasas that lure the pilgrims with their ethereal beauty and grandeur. The temple has three distinct parts. As the devotees cross the portals, they enter the outer hall, called Sabha Mandap. It is the first part and herein they stand waiting to avail the darsan of the Lord Badarinath. The idol of Badarinath made of Saligram measuring about three feet is installed in Garbha Briha the innermost part. It is in padmasana posture, with two hands in yoga mudra pose. 

The priests sit in here and offer prayers to the idols. There are nine idols in total in this Garbha Griha. Sri Mahalakshmi, His consort stands on His left, and next to Her, the stone images of Nara and Narayana in sitting posture are installed. The images of Garuda, Vinayaka and Kubera are seen to the right side of the Lord with those of Narada and Uddhava in the front.
