BADRINATH YATRA BY HELICOPTER                                                                                                                                          Badrinath temple is dedicated to Lord Badri ,who is the form of Lord Vishnu .Established by Adi Guru Shankaracharya in 9th century as one  of the four Dham for Hindus, situated in the Chamoli  district of Uttarakhand ,is the most visited temple of Hindu,s                                  I visited this temple through a Do-dham package tour by helicopter, arranged by a traveling company.  From Sahastradhara Helipad ,Dehradun  we flew at 7.15 AM .It took about one hour to reach Badrinath helipad. It was a breathtaking air journey and great feast to the eyes ,to watch Tehri dam below with green water in it and the range of snow-capped Himalayan peaks. We landed at the  Badrinath Helipad. Before landing, pilot showed us the Arial view of the Badrinath temple .From here  we were picked  up  by a pre-arranged taxi and dropped near the temple ,which was less than 100 meter away.  We walked on foot and after crossing Alaknanda bridge ,reached in the temple  premises .Our entry was quick ,because of VIP pass . We sat inside the atrium and got the Dibya-Darshan of  Lord vishnu .His statue was about 1 feet ,made of black stone. Overall it was a mesmerizing experience to all of us.
