One of the most revered pilgrimage centers in India, the holy town of Badrinath is one of the Char Dham destinations of India, a combination of four of the holiest places in India, which are important pilgrimage centers to any devout Hindu. Thus, if you are planning a tour to Uttaranchal, make sure you include a trip to Badrinath as an integral part of your tour itinerary to Uttaranchal. The trip is also accompanied by activities of shopping in Badrinath.
Shopping in Badrinath is defined by the various shops selling trinkets and other small souvenirs to take back home after a holiday in Badrinath. These include miniature "Salgram Silas" or the sacred stone of Lord Vishnu, who is the presiding deity of this revered temple town. Besides this, a number of shops sell woolens, which are the specialty shopping items of almost every hill station.
