About: Narasimha Temple at Joshimath (Uttarakhand, India)

This place is situated at the entrance of Gandh Madan mountain. This is the same holy place whereby the prayer of devotee Prahlad, Lord Shri Narasimha renounced his fierce form and appeared in a gentle form. At this place, Shri Adi Jagadguru Shankaracharya worshiped Lord Narasimha by establishing it. According to mythological tradition, winter worship of Lord Badrinath is done at this place. That’s why Shri Badrinath Yatra is considered successful after seeing here Lord Narasimha.
