Yatra Significance

The Badrinath area is mentioned to as Badari or Badarikashram in Hindu Holy Books. It is a place blessed to Vishnu, particularly in Vishnu's dual form of Nara-Narayana. Thus, in the Mahabharata, Krishna, addressing Arjuna, tells, "Thou wast Nara in a former body, and with Narayana for thy companion, didst perform dreadful austerity at Badari for many myriads of years."

Badrinath was re-established as the main pilgrimage site by Adi Shankara in the ninth century. In previous days, pilgrims used to walk hundreds of miles to visit Badrinath temple. In recent time its fame has increased considerably. The temple in Badrinath is also a holy pilgrimage site for Vaishnavites. Badrinath is also the gateway to several mountaineering missions headed to mountains like Nilkantha.
