Sri Badrinath Dham is situated on either banks of the    Alaknanda.  Standing like  twin sentinels over the valley are  the Nar and Narain mountains, and far in the distance soars  the resplendent Nilkanth peak.  Sri Badrinath Temple is in  the lap of  Narain Parvat on the right bank with Nilkanth in  the background.  Most of the living apartments in Badrinath are in the lap  of Nar Parvat and in between flows the Alaknanda,  touching  the feet of Lord Badrinathji.

Opening date of kapat:     11th May, 2016


         At Sri Badrinath,  different kinds of pujas are performed on behalf of individuals.  Every puja must be preceded by a “holy dip” in the Tapta Kund. Some of the special morning pujas are:- Abhishek, Mahabhiskek, Srimadbhagwat path, and Geeta path. Some of the special evening pujas are:-Arti and Geet Govind.


Darshan of Lord Badrinath ji is available from the sabha mandap all the time the temple is open.  The Badrinath temple committee posts volunteers at various points to manage proper movement of  the large crowds. 

Timings for darshan at the Badrinath temple:

Morning- Opens at 04.30 hrs. with Shubh Prabhatam and closes at 13.00 hrs.

Afternoon- Opens at 16.00 hrs.  and closes at 21.00 hrs., after the divine song “Geet Govind”

It is customary to close the temple for Bhog ceremony every day from 13.00 hrs to 16.00hrs. But in the event of heavy rush, the Badrinath temple administration some times  shortens the Bhog interval for the benefit of devotees.
