A great religious importance has been attached to Badrinath Puri, which was once surrounded by wild berries or "Badri" and so it was named "Badrivan". This land has been worshipped by saints and sages and has been the abode of yogies, and great hermits over the ages. Shri Badrinath is guarded by the twin mountain ranges of Nar and Narayan range near the towering Neelkanth Peak. The other hot water tanks are "Narad Kund" & "Surya Kund" in which pilgrims take the holy bath. The main temple of the Badrinath is adobe by the meditating statue of the Lord Vishnu.
