Portals of the Central Himalayan Hindu shrine of Badrinath in the Chamoli district of the state were closed for the winter today.

At a height of 10,248 ft above sea level, Badrinath shrine was closed for the winter in the afternoon in presence of priests, dharmadikaris and other temple committee members.

Badrinath Dham’s temple committee office bearer JP Sati said the temple was decked up with flowers and other decorations. An Army band was also present on the occasion.
