The temple of Bhavishya Badri is at an altitude of 2744
metres and is surrounded by dense forests. Located at Subain near tapovan
about 17 kms east of Joshimath on Joshimath-Lata-Malari route. Pilgrims
have to trek beyond Tapovan, up the Dhauliganga River.
Tapovan has sulphurous hotsprings and the view of the Tapovan valley towards the north is breathtakingly beautiful. Traditionally it is believed that a day will come when the present route to badrinath will be inaccessible and Lord Badrinath will be worshipped here. Thus the name 'Bhavishya Badri', which literally means the 'Badri of the future'.
