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.
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.
Tapt Kund is at a walking distance from the Badrinath Temple.
