Adi Badri Temple Mythology

It is believed that Lord Vishnu resided at Adi Badri during the Satya, Treta and Dwapar yugas before moving to Badrinath in Kali Yuga. Whenever the road to Badrinath is closed due to weather conditions, devotees worship Lord Vishnu at Adi Badri. The ancient saints and seers prophesized that Lord Vishnu will shift his abode to Bhavishya Badri in Satya Yuga after the completion of Kali Yuga. 

Another legend states that Maharishi Ved Vyas, who is known to have divided the Veda into Rigvega, Samveda, Yajurveda and Atharveda, wrote Bhagwat Gita at Adi Badri which was delivered by the God himself.
