The Opening and Closing Date of Badrinath Temple shrine in 2017

The Badrinath temple opens every year in the month of April-May & closes for winters in the third week of November. Thus the temple is shut down for 6 months every year during which prayers to the Badri Vishal continue at the Narsimha temple in Joshimath.

The dates for opening date of Shri Badrinath Temple had been announced by the priests.

The Badrinath Temple was open on 06 May, 2017.

Note: Generally, The Temple doors are closed around October (dates are fixed on Vijayadashmi) at the advent of winters and are opened again for worship at around last week of April (dates are decided on Basant Panchami ).

Badrinath in Winters

Badrinath Temple is shut down for winter months every year during while prayers to the Badri Vishal ‘Utsav Murti’ continue at the Narsimha temple in Joshimath. The priests of Badrinath Temple continue to perform the rituals on the ‘Utsav Murti’ at Narasimha temple during the winter season.

Before closing the temple doors, the priests light a lamp before the idol in the sanctum. It is said that during this period of winter months, Narad Muni who had attained salvation here, continues with the prayer services. This belief is further strengthened based on the fact that when the temple is again reopened after six months in spring, the lamp is still seen to be flickering!

No, there will be only 0.1% chances of snow before Diwali. If snow happens, then also it will very less, just 1-2 inches and will melt soon. So there will be no road closed before Diwali. You can do yatra safely.
