The revered shrine of Badrinath, a part of the Chardham of Uttarakhand (Yamunotri, Gangotri, Kedarnath and Badrinath) as well as the Chardham of India (Badrinath, Jagannath Puri, Rameshwaram and Dwarkapuri), is situated between the Nar and Narayan peaks on the banks of Alaknanda. It is the largest and the most revered among the Panch Badri. It is believed that Adi Guru Shankaracharya built the four pilgrimages in four corners of the country, today known and the Chardham of India, in the 8th century to revive the lost prestige of Hinduism and unite the country in one bond.
Badri refers to a berry that used to grow in abundance in the area where Badrinath is situated today and Nath refers to lord Vishnu. According the Hindu legends Lord Vishnu did a long penance in the area and Godess Lakshmi took the form of blue berries to protect him in the harsh climate. Every year the temple is open between the months or April and November. The opening date is Basant Pachami and the closure is done on Vijaydashmi by the Mandir Committee. During the winters the Utsav Murti (the idol used for public functions) of Lord Badrinath is placed and worshipped at the Narsimha Temple at Joshimath. The other four subsidiary Badris known as Panch Badri are Bhavishya Badri, Yogdhyan Badri, Adi Badri and Bridha Badri. There are many festivals and functions that are held at the temple of Badrinath. The major festivals include Badri Kedar Utsav, Krishna Janmashtmi and Mata Murti ka Mela.
