Yogadhyan Badri Temple

Yogadhyan Badri Temple is situated in a tiny hamlet at Pandukeshwar on Rishikesh-Badrinath highway. It is one of the five badris placed at an altitude of 1,920 m. The temple is dedicated to the Lord Vishnu. According to the belief, Pandu, father of the Pandavas, meditated here and was blessed by Vishnu for his penance. The place got its name from this incident.
