BADARINATH
The Himalayan abode of Sri Maha Vishnu

Moreover, holy scriptures like, the Bhagavata, Badari Mahatmya, Skanda bring out vividly its sanctity, acquired by the dwelling and frequenting of the superhuman personages, right from the days of the Aryan culture taking deep roots in this Bharat Khanda. As such there is a special procedure prescribed for pilgrimage to his holy kshetra and it is quite elaborate. It has five sacred thirthas-Rishiganga, Kumaradhara, Prahladadhara, Taptakund and Naradakund, and their sanctity along with history is adding glory to this place for, a dip in them ensures emancipation, according to belief. In addition, there ire Panchasilas embodying special powers and offering prayers' to them with elaborate rituals certainly confers merit. They are Naradasila, Varahasila, Markandeyasila, Garudasila, and Narasimhasila. Naturally these factors are heightening the craze of the pilgrims to visit them. The two famous hot water springs Naradakund and Suryakund lying at a short distance from the temple are considered very holy, and hence one can find heavy crowds around them throughout the day for a dip; for, pilgrims invariably take bath before entering the sanctum sanctorum. 'Moreover, the pull of the chilly weather detains them in the steaming hot waters longer time than needed, because of the unending thrills passing in their bodies.
