Surya Kund is one of the various thermal water springs in Badrinath. It is believed that pilgrims who take a dip into this hot water become free from their sins. It is considered to be a good practice to take a bath in the water of the Kund before visiting the Badrinath Temple.
This is a place which is dedicated to Sun God and hence it is known as Surya (Sun) Kund.
The Kund lies on the way to the temple and is at a walking distance from the Badrinath Bust Stand.
