The main entrance gate of Badarinath temple, popularly known as Singhdwar, is colourful and intimidating. The temple is around 50 feet tall, with a little cupola on top and a gold gilded roof.
The Badarinath temple is divided into three sections:
(a) The Garbha Griha, also known as the sanctum sanctorum,
(b) The Darshan Mandap, where rites are performed,
(c) The Sabha Mandap, where pilgrims congregate.
Lord Badari Narayan, Kuber (God of Wealth), Narad rishi, Udhava, Nar, and Narayan are all housed in the Garbha Griha section, which features a gold-covered canopy. There are 15 idols in the temple complex. The one-meter-high image of Lord Badarinath, finely sculpted in black stone, is especially appealing.
