Badrinath or Badrinarayan Dham is dedicated to Lord Vishnu which is situated in Uttarakhand, India. Badrinath was recognized by Adi Shankara in 9th century as a main shrine. Shankaracharya is measured as the guru who brought rebirth for Hinduism in that period, which was then conquered by Buddhism. His entrance at Badrinath brought a rebellion and restores people’s faith in Hinduism. The temple is also one of the 108 Divya Desams dedicated to Vishnu, who is worshipped as Badrinath—holy shrines for Vaishnavites. It is open for six months every year (between the end of April and the beginning of November), because of extreme weather conditions in the Himalayan region. The temple is located in Garhwal hill tracks in Chamoli district along the banks of Alaknanda River.
It is one of the most visited pilgrimage centers of India
