Structure of the ANCIENT TEMPLE is like other tipical UTTRAKHAND style, One of SAPTA/PANCHA BADRI temples. 5 m up hill. A holy place.

Vridh Badri is an all inclusive part of the Badrinath pilgrimage. Not many people know about it and in a mystical way its helping in maintaining the sanctity of the place.

Vridha Badri OR Vridh Badri is a small temple located in a village called Animath. It's around 7 to 8 km from Joshimath and falls on the way to Kalpeshwar Mahadev Temple. As per the locals, there are 5 Badri (Panch Badri) and Vridh Badri is one of them. The other places which constitute the PanchaBadri include:
- Badri Vishal OR Badrinath
- Adi Badri
- Bhavishya Badri
- Yoga Badri

As per the legend, once sage Narada performed penance at this place. Lord Vishnu appeared before Narada in the guise of an old man. It is also believed that Lord Badri resided at this place (Village Animath) before Kalyuga. Since the lord appeared in form of an old man, therefore the temple got its name Vridh (Old) Badri.

To reach the temple, one needs to walk around 10 min. Its a pretty small village and the lane to the temple is quite narrow and you would be crossing some home to reach the temple. The temple is also very small and you can easily complete this place in 30 minutes (including the walking time).
