Yog Dhyan Badri
The temple of Yog dhyan Badri, one of the five Badris is located at Pandukeshwar ( 1920mts.) just 24kms. short of Badrinath on Rishikesh - Badrinath highway. The image, depiciting a meditative posture of the Lord, is worshipped here. the Pandavas are said to have handed over Hastinapur to king Parikshit and retired here.

Bhavishya Badri
The temple of Bhavishya Badri is at an elevation 3641mts., and is surrounded by dense forests. It is located at Subain near Tapovan, about 17kms. east of Joshimath on Joshimath - Lata Malari route. Pilgrims have to trek beyond Tapovan, up the Dhauliganga river. It is believed that a day will come when the present route to Badrinath will become inaccessible and Lord Badrinath will then be worshipped here. Hence the name ' Bhavishya Badri' which literally means the " future Badri". 

Adi Badri
Approachable from Karnprayag by a motorable road on the way to Ranikhet, are remains of 16 small temples. Seven among them are ancient ones, belonging to the late Gupta period.
