The Badrinath Temple was decorated with 15 quintals of marigold flowers in the early hours of November 18. The portals of one of the country’s holiest shrines will be closed for winter later on November 18.
Devotees who reached the Badrinath Dham for worship on November 18 applauded the decoration and were seen clicking pictures of the shrine decked up with marigold flowers.
An official release from the Badrinath Dham Temple Committee stated, “The portals of Badrinath Dham will be closed for winter at 3.33 pm today.”
The Badrinath Dham was a sight to behold on Deepawali night as it was exquisitely decorated for the Festival of Lights.
Deepawali was celebrated with great pomp and fervour at the temple. Devotees from all over the country and abroad reached Badrinath Dham to celebrate Deepawali. They waited in queues from morning until late evening for a ‘darshan’ of the deity.
After the ‘aarti’ at the temple, the devotees immersed themselves in the Deepostav celebrations.
