The group of 7 Vishnu temples in Garhwal region of Uttarakhand is known as Sapta Badri. The main temple among these temples is Badrinath temple which is also called Badri Vishal. The other temples are: 1) Badrinath temple 2) Adi Badri 3) Dhyan Badri 4) Ardha Badri 5) Vridha Badri and 6) Yogdhyan Badri. There is an another group of 5 temples of Vishnu (also called panch Badri) which includes all the Sapta Badri temples except Ardha Badri and Dhyan Badri (or sometimes Vridha Badri). Sometimes, rarely, Narsingh Badri is also added to the list of Sapt Badri or Panch Badri.
The area beginning from Nandaprayag in the Chamoli district to Satopant which is 24 km from Badrinath is called Badri – Kshetra. All the Badri temples are located in this region. The word Badri has been driven from a type of berry fruit. In ancient times, the area was full of there berries hence the name got associated, Vishnu Bhagwan meditated here, hence Badrinath ji name came into existence. The reason for keeping the name “Badri” at the end of all Sapta Badri temple as suffix also shows the significance of “Badri” name.
Among all Sapta Badri temples the main temple “Badrinath” is well connected by road while the other remaining temples are located at remote places.

As per the religious texts, Bavishya Badri shall come into existence in Kaliyug when the evil orces shall tend to overpower the modern world. The temple Narsingh, located at Joshimath, is a beautifully carved statue of Narsingh Bhgwan carrying a sword. As per the traditions, the arm carrying that sword is getting thinner year by year, and in Kaliyug this arm will breakdown. When this occurs, the mountains of Jay and Vijay will collapse to block the route to Badrinath temple and make the journey inaccessible. The present world will get destroyed and a new world will start where Bhavishya Badri shall be worshipped.
