The Badrinath Temple Complex is situated at an elevation of around 3,133 m. Dedicated to Lord Vishnu, the site is viewed as sacred for Hindus. As per legends, the shrine place exists since the Vedic Period. The symbol of Lord Vishnu is put in the 'garbha griha'. The temple is closed during the winter season because of heavy snowfall.
The temple likewise has a 'shobha mandap' and a 'darshan mandap'. The Badrinath Temple Complex has fifteen icons of Hindu divine beings and goddesses. A symbol of Lord Buddha was set in the temple, which was later reinstalled by Adi Shankaracharya close to the statue of Lord Vishnu.
