Maha Kumbha 2013 : Badrinath Matha

According to the tradition initiated by Adi Shankara, this matha is in charge of the Atharvaveda. Jyotirmath, which is close to the pilgrimage town of Badrinath, has not always been an active matha. It is sometimes said incorrectly that the original northern matha was established at Badrinath. This place can be a base station for travellers going to Guru Gobind Ghat or the Valley of Flowers National Park.

In its most recent history, the Jyotirmath became inactive in the early 19th century. The formal occupation of the matha was restarted with the aid of the heads of some of the other mathas from about 1940 onward when Brahmananda Saraswati became the Shankaracharya from 1941 to 1953. The current head or shankaracharya is Svarupananda Sarasvati who is also head of the Dvaraka Pitha.
