I do have nostalgic moments of my visit to Shree Badrinath Temple in 2009, located in the Himalayan range. (Elevation of 3100 meters or 10,170 feet)

This shrine is the most visited temple in our country. This temple is dedicated to Lord Vishnu dating back to the Vedic Period.

It’s the toughest pilgrimage.


This town is approximately 108 km (67 miles) from Badrinath Shrine.

Here Alaknanda River Joins the Bhagirathi river which then becomes the Ganges river.

So this place is the starting point of the River Ganges, the most sacred body of water (in the world) for Hindus.

In the image below you can see both rivers joining together to form the Ganges.


“The thing about the light that shines within us is we have the option to put a shade on it, which impedes the light from emitting, or take the shade off it, which allows the world around us to become illuminated” Jeffrey G. Duart


Nilkantha Peak rises 3474 meters (11,398 feet) and is prominently seen from Badrinath Shrine.
This is the maximum Zoom I could achieve with the camera.

What a divine feeling as you watch the peak in silent meditation!!

Thank you for your visit.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏
