BADARINATH
The Himalayan abode of Sri Maha Vishnu

Another feature that commands veneration is, although it is a Vaishnava Kshetra, it houses in its sacred precincts, the famous Sankaracharya Pitha, one among the four established by Adi Sankara himself, and it is called Uttaramnaya Jyotirmath. Yet another, that declares its glorious catholocity is, that the Naivedya and prasad given here are to be accepted by all, regardless of one's faith in the presiding Deity. If anyone refuses, either due to stupidity, or bigotry, he is deemed to be worse than a chandala - an untouchable, unfit to claim any religious rite. According to sastric injections, one' who gives dana, be it as piece of silver or gold in this sacred Kshetra, will never be bon poor in the next thousand births. AN what a merit! How pious is this Kshetra! There are many holy spots dear and sacred to both Hari and Hara in this land, though it is predominantly a Vaishnava Kshetra, and there lies its uniqueness in Catholocity.
