Token system at Badrinath Temple

Buoyed by the success of ten-day trial of token system for devotees in the famous Badrinath shrine, its committee has now decided to continue with the system throughout the yatra season. Chief Executive Officer of Badrinath-Kedarnath temple committee B D Singh said the token system, which was introduced a day after reopening of the portals for ten days on trial basis, has yielded positive results in managing the large number of devotees as well as their valuable time and so it has been decided to continue the system for the entire yatra period. He said during the past 10 days, more than 80,000 devotees had paid their obeisance in the shrine, which is dedicated to Lord Vishnu.

The shrine was reopened after a gap of six months on April 29. Three token counters have been set up at taxi stand in Badrinath from where the pilgrims could get free tokens for the worship in the temple even one day in advance. “In this system more than 600 devotees are able to worship in the temple in an hour,” he said. As the token system has come to force, there is no need for pilgrims to stand in long queues for several hours outside the temple. Instead the pilgrims now could visit other nearby spots and temples in that time. The temple committee is also planning to make the system online. The temple committee has also decided to present each of the pilgrims visiting the shrine with the ‘Prasad’ of Tulsi and Chandan in small packets.

  1. introducing token system for darshan is a welcome move.
    it should be a smooth one and also pilgrims friendly
    without involving any middlemen, considering the heavy flow of pilgrims due the temple’s closure for six months during the winter season.
