The Opening and Closing Date of Badrinath Temple shrine in 2018

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.

Badrinath Temple will be open on 30 April, 2018 at 04:30 am.

Note: Generally, The Temple doors are closed around October- November (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!

Badrinath Temple Opening Ceremony

Badrinath is a sacred place for Lord Vishnu devotees. Badrinath Temple gates open for pilgrims in the month of Apr-May each year. The dates of opening of kapats of Badrinath Temple announce on the occasion of Basant Panchmi. Watch Badrinath Dham opening video here and plan your trip to Badrinath Temple.

I want a calm and relaxing tour. It is a pilgrimage with my elderly parents (70 years old). Kindly suggest options. I would prefer the package from Dehradun. with sightseeing in and around each place. Including taking holy bath and doing Puja/ Abhishek. Should a 2 days stay at each place be enough and then travel to the next place. Is the month of May is best for such relaxed pilgrimage ? I want to avoid standing in queues. Also no hiking. ( a few minutes walk is OK but not for hours.). Kindly suggest.

Hi Subha, Last year we travelled from Rishikesh. We took a cab and started around 7.00 clock in the morning. Visited Rudraprayag, Karnaprayag,Dhari Devi temple, Hanuman Choti and reached by 6.30pm to Badrinath. We took hotel, relaxed a while & visited temple too. So taking CAB is best. No trekking is needed. From Dehradun start little early. That would be best. I would like to share one more detail in this regard. We attended morning 4.30 Arti. We took bath in Thapta Kund and bought tickets. We were 4 of us. That Pooja was so divine. I hope if you… Read more »

Hi Shubha, You can hire a cab for 3 to reach Badrinath in a day from Haridwar and after darshan next day, you can get back. If running on a tight budget, then book seats on bus from Haridwar/ Rishikesh. There is no need to trek as Badrinath is well connected by road.

Upto Delhi, you must be knowing the route. From Delhi, you can travel by roadways bus or train upto Haridwar (220 KMs from Delhi) or Rishikesh (another 20 KM from Haridwar). From Rishikesh onward, there is no railway track and you will have to travel by road. Roadways Buses and private taxis are available from Rishikesh. The total distance between Delhi and Badrinath is 538 KMs. The route from Delhi will be Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut-Muzaffarpur-Haridwar-Rishikesh-Dev Prayag-Rudra Prayag-Karna Prayag-Joshi Math-Badrinath. Since the terrain beyond Rishikesh is hilly, do not expect an average speed of more than 30 KM per hour from there.
