  BADRINATH

It is considered the holiest of the four main shrines of Uttrakhand. Badrinath is one of the itinerary of the every devout Hindu. The present temple was built about 2 centuries ago by the Kings of Gharwal. The principal idol in the temple is of black stone and represents Lord Vishnu seated in a meditative pose, and flanked by Narayan. Badrinath is also known as Vishal Badri. The temple remains closed from October to April due to severe winter conditions. The famous hot spring of Taptkund and Naradkund are just below the temple. A dip considered holy and refreshing to the body as well as the soul is a must before offering prayers to Shri Badrinath.
In the 8th Century A.D., the Adiguru Shankarachara, while climbing to a place, Called Ashta Khand, for meditation, an Akashvani said to him, Shankar the thing they wanted to attain through mediation, can be attained by three, by re-enshrining the idol of Lord Vishnu, which lies asleep in the Narad Kund.  Avail of this opportunity and be blessed.  The Adiguru dived into the Narad Kund and recovering the idol of Vishnu, duly reshrined it and once again the Temple of Badrinath became a Hindu shrine.  Made of Shalagram stone (black) the details are not well defined the result of weathering, then thrown in the pond for several years.  Seated in 'padmasan' (seated) posture, opinions differ as to wheather the idol is of Vishnu or the Buddha, who is always depicted in an akin posture called the "Bodhisattava".
