Tapta Kund, Badrinath

Tapt Kund is a group of natural sulphur springs. The spring is believed to possess medicinal properties and devotees take a dip in the water of the spring before visiting the Temple. A dip into the water of the spring is believed to be a good cure for skin diseases. Taking a bath in the water is known as “Agni Teerth” which is believed to wash away one’s sins. There are separate bathing areas for men and women. 


History:
It is said that when Lord Vishnu was happy with Agni Dev’s (Fire God) penance, he granted Agni Dev a boon to eternally reside in the form of this Kund here.
