On the banks of Badrinath Dham, in flowing Alaknanda, after visiting the Brahma Kapal, the dead souls get salvation. After this there is no need to get a Pind Daan for any ancestors anywhere. Only on the date of his death in the Shraddha Pakhi, a Brahmin has to feed.
It is mentioned in the Puranas
that travelers make pilgrims for the fulfillment of the ancestors. The Pinnacle
method ends here. This shrine is a little away from the temple in the form of
rock. Here God’s Mahaprasad (cooked rice) is given to the ancestral Pind in death
ceremony, by which the ancestors get renewed freedom. When Brahmaji became
attached to his daughter on the evening, Shiva took another form and cut off
his head with anger. From then on, Brahma is four-faced. Earlier there were Five
faces of Brahma. But with the sin of Brahmana, that head stuck with Shiva’s
hand. They got rid of that head and went all the way to the pilgrimage.
After reaching the Nidan
Badrikashram, his skull fell from the hands of the Shivaji near Alaknanda.
Therefore, this place began to be known as Brahma Kapal. Along with the visit
of Badrinath Dham, pilgrims from distant states do not forget to perform Brahma
kapal from their ancestors.

After the huge presence of Lord Badri in his Dham – Badrinath, pilgrims can worship him in the next six months during Chardham yatra Time. It is believed that, after the closing of Badrinath Kapat, Goddess Narada will worship Lord Narayana for the next 6 months, as a representative of the divinities. 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.
Mata Laxmi will remain separate

After the inauguration of Kapat of Sri Badrinath Dham, Mother Lakshmi will remain separated from Lord Narayana for six months. Dharmadhikari of Badrinath Dham – Bhavna Chandra Uniyal explains that, inside the temple of Badrinath, Mata Lakshmi has her own separate temple. Here devotees worship Mata Lakshmi for six months. Leaving the treasure of Lord Narayana to Lord Kubera and Lord Balasaheb Uddhav Ji, Mata Lakshmi sits with God here in her temple.
Badrinath temple is divided into
It is said that the king of Garhwal had built Badrinath temple. However, according to public beliefs, Adi Shankaracharya had established a temple here. This temple is divided into three parts.

The third part is the Pilgrim Hall. From here devotees can worship Lord Narayana.
