Badrinath is located 3,133 m above sea level in Chamoli district of Uttarakhand. The temple is one most important shrine among the Char Dham Pilgrimage sites & also highly revered among the Panch Badri. It is mentioned in Bhagavata Purana that at Badrikashram (means Badrinath), the sages Nara and Narayana had been undergoing great penance since time immemorial for the welfare of all living entities. This religious town is situated between Nar & Narayan Mountains on the bank of river Alaknanda. There are a few legendary believes associated with this sacred place.

When Goddess Ganges was descending in the earth, she split entire water into 12 channel & one of them was Alaknanda. Another belief is that when Lord Vishnu meditating here then Goddess Lakshmi stood next to protect him from scorching sunlight & later she turned into a Badri herself called 'BADRI VISHAL' and lord (Nath) became the Badrinath. It is mentioned in Mahabharata that Pandavas ascended to heaven from the Swargarohini peak through Badrinath and the town of Mana, 4 km north of Badrinath.
