This place can be reached from Helang Chatti by a 12 km trek. The place is associated with the Urvarishi, son of the King Puranjaya, a descendant of Pandavas who meditated here and established a Vishnu temple. The temple Kalpeshwar is 2 km from here.  The idol is a four armed made of black stone in a meditative form.

Ardha Badri

Ardha Badri is also a Sapt Badri temple. The meaning of Ardha Badri is half Badri. The place is located along the Joshimath – Tapovan road. The idol is kept at a remote village where one can reach by trekking. Hera is the village where this temple is located. In comparison to other temple idols, this idol is smaller. The route to this temple goes through Subhain. The path is very difficult and steep.
