BADRINATH-“Holy Town of Uttarakhand” and a nagar panchayat in Chamoli district in the state of Uttarakhand, India. It is one of the four sites in India’s Char Dham pilgrimage and gets its name from the Badrinath Temple. Four Char Dham’s Yatra are Badrinath, Kedarnath, Yamnotri, and Gangotri. The Badrinath Temple is the main attraction in the town. According to Hindusim, legend Shankar discovered a black stone image of Lord Badrinarayan made of Saligram stone in the Alaknanda River. He originally enshrined it in a cave near the Tapt Kund hot springs. In the sixteenth century, the King of Garhwal moved the murti to the present temple. The temple is approximately 50 ft tall with a small cupola on top, covered with a gold gilt roof. The facade is built of stone, with arched windows.
