Badrinath Shrine reopens on 16th May, 2013

For all those who wish to pay homage to the Badrinath Shrine this year will be able to do so from May 16th.

After its annual closure during winter due to snow bound conditions, the portals of the shrine have been scheduled to be reopened for devotees at 4 am on May 16.

The portals of Badrinath Dham, dedicated to Lord Vishnu and located at a height of more than 10,000 ft in the Himalayas, are closed every year for six months due to snow bound conditions during winter and reopened for visitors in April and May.

During the long winter recess Lord Vishnu’s idol is worshipped at Narsingh temple located at nearby Joshimath.
