During this time, men’s devotees in Badrinath Dham are not allowed to go. Located at a height of 3133 meters (10276 feet) above sea level, Shri Badrinath Dham Temple has been considered as the most famous Char dhams of the country. In the hand of Kedarkhand of ‘Skanda Purana’ it is mentioned that Badrinath Tirtha is the divine earth Pilgrimage, that should not been forget the as the Badri in the future. Because, there might be many holy pilgrimages in heaven, earth and hell, but the pilgrimage like Badrinath was neither in past nor will be in future. It is believed that Lord Vishnu had done penance in Badrinath Dham, surrounded by hills in the Himalayas. Therefore, there are also specific traditions of the worship of God Badri Vishal. In the six months of winter, when the Kapat of Narayana are closed, then as the representative of the deities Devarshi Narada worship Lord Vishnu. During this, mata Laxmi with Lord Vishnu, remains in Badrish Panchayat. In the summer, when the Kapat of Badrinath Dham opens for six months, then humans have the right to worship God. During this, Vishnu devotees of the country and abroad earn the virtue of worshiping Lord after reaching Badrinath Dham.

Significane of Kedarnath Temple

Situated in the Rudraprayag district of Uttarakhand, surrounded by giant mountains on three sides, Kedarnath Dham is a symbol of the faith of countless devotees. According to the belief of Hinduism, Kedarnath Dham is considered to be a major center of energy. This temple of Lord Shiva is 85 feet high, 187 feet long and 80 feet wide.

There is a belief about the Jyotirling of Kedarnath, that Pandavas wanted to be freed from the sin of brotherhood when they were victorious in the war of Mahabharata. For this, they wanted to obtain the blessings of Lord Shiva, but the Lord was angry with the Pandavas.

Pandavas went to Kashi for the visit of Lord Bholenath, they did not meet him. Pandavas came to the Himalayas while searching Shiva. The Lord did not want to see the Pandavas, so he went into Kedarnath. On the other hand, Pandav also reached Kedar behind him.

Shiva took the form of the bull and found it in other animals and found it in other animals. Pandavas became suspicious. Bhim took a huge look and spread the legs on two hills. All the cow-bulls went out there, but the bull-headed Lord Shiva was not ready to go under the feet.

Bhima blazed on that bull, but the ox was placed on the ground. Bhima grabbed the back of the bull’s back. Lord Shiva was glad to see the devotion of Pandavas in this. He gave sight to the Pandavas and freed them from sin. Since then, they are worshiped in Shri Kedarnath as the form of the back of Lord Shiva’s bull.

In the main part of the temple there is the path of Pradakshina around the pavilion and sanctuary. Nandi bulls are in the vicinity of the outer courtyard. There is no authentic mention of who built the temple. It is said that it was founded by Guru Shankaracharya.
