The future Badri is located at 2, 744mts. amidst
the thick forest surrounding tapovan.
According to a divination, it is here that all devoteess will throng
once Badrinath is no more. While
there can be no conceivable reason why this should hapeen, scientists
agree that joshimath,
the entry point into the area before the final, most strenuous climb,
is sited on an ancient landslide and has been sinking, and with
a barrage coming up close by, may actually see the fulfilment of
the divine prophecy.
But whatever happens, Bhavishya Badri is popular even now, Enshrined

springs enroute to the banks of the Dhauliganga, and on to the shrine.
