Badrinath is a holy town of the Hindus and is located in the Chamoli district in the state of Uttarakhand. It is the most important of the four sites in the Char-Dham pilgrimage. It is located in the Garhwal hills, on the banks of the Alaknanda River, at a height of 3133m above the sea level.

The mountains around Badrinath find mention even in the Mahabharata, when the Pandavas are said to have ended their life by ascending the slopes of a peak in western Garhwal called Swargarohini. According to local legends, the Pandavas passed through Badrinath and the town of Mana, 4 km north of Badrinath, on their way to Swargarohini. There is also a cave in Mana where Vyas wrote the Mahabharata.

Badrinath was founded by Adi Shankara in the 9th century. During the recent years however, the popularity of Badrinath has increased manifolds, with an estimated 600,000 pilgrims visiting during the 2006-07 season alone. Nestled in the twin mountain ranges of Nar and Narayan, it is considered as one of the main pilgrimage shrines. The shrine of Badrinath is dedicated to Vishnu, with the main idol representing him in a meditative posture. In brief, we can say that Badrinath is a place of great importance.
