Bhavishya Badari is located approximately 17 km east of Joshimath on the Joshimath-Lata-Malari course and rises to 2744 m. Explorers trek pass Tapovan along the Dhauliganga River to reach this sacred site. Here you can see the icon of Narsimh (the lion-headed god). Usually, it is hoped that the days will come when it will be difficult to reach the current course towards Badrinath and Lord Badarinath will be worshiped here, and that is why the place is called Bhavishya Badri. The black idol of Lord Vishnu can be seen in a meditative posture. The idol is adorned with flower garlands and peacock feathers. Bhavishya Badri or Bhabisya Badri is located in Subhain village of Niti Valley on the way to Lata from Tapovan in Uttarkashi, Uttarakhand.
Bhavishya Badri, also written as Bhabisya Badri, 2,744 meters (9,003 feet) above sea level is located in a town called Subhain at a distance of 17 kilometers (11 miles) from Joshimath, passing through Tapovan and the access is through a thick forest, just by trekking.

Bhavishya Badri Temple History:
According to the legend of Bhavishya Badri, at the end of the Kal Yuga, the Nara and Narayana mountains would block the route to Badrinath temple and the sacred shrine would become inaccessible. The world will be destroyed and a new world will be established. Then, Lord Badrinath will appear at the Bhavishya Badri temple and he will be worshipped at Bhavishya Badri. The Narasingh Badri shrine at Joshimath is closely linked with the legend of Bhavishya Badri. Currently, the Bhavishya Badri has an idol of Shri Narasimha, the lion-faced incarnation and one of the ten incarnations of Sri Vishnu.
A prophecy says, at the end of Kal Yuga, Nara and Narayan hills will be collapsed blocking the path to the Badrinath Temple. These hills will collapse when the right arm of the idol of Lord Narsingh currently situated in Joshimath will detach from its body. The arm of the Sri Narsingh idol is shrinking day by day. This landslide will occur at the end of Kali Yuga and in Satya Yuga, Badrinath will move his abode to Bhavishya Badri.
The Narsingh temple in Joshimath is the place where the Badrinath idol is worshipped during the winter. It is also called Narsingh Badri and is included in Sapt Badri. During the winter season, priests at the main Badrinath temple come down to Joshimath bringing the idol of Badrinath along with them and worship the god in the Narsingh Badri temple. Narsingh Badri temple has a Badrinath idol along with the Narsingh idol.
