It is claimed that Lord Brahma resides in Brahma Kapal and that when their family members do their last rites, or shraddha karma, here, the departed souls are freed from the cycle of birth and death. Several pundits (priests) can be found here, sitting with samagri (materials) to perform the ceremony.

The Brahma Kapal ghat is present in Badrinath Dham in the Himalayan state of Uttarakhand in India and is constantly splashed by the cool waters of the Alakananda River

It is frequently visited by pilgrims who come to perform the Shraddha ceremony of their forefathers and mothers.

Frequently Asked Questions:

On the banks of the river, Tarpan, Bhoj, and Pind Daan are done suitably for the emancipation of the ancestors. Some special locations in the country have been designated for this purpose. In the country, about 55 locations are regarded as essential during Shradh Paksha.

So it is reported and believed that after conducting Shradh in Gaya, the final Shradh is conducted in Badrikashram, Uttarakhand’s ‘Brahmakapali’. After Gaya, it is the most important location. It is also said that those ancestors who do not get salvation in Gaya or elsewhere find redemption here by doing Shradh. This location is near Badrinath Dham, on the banks of the Alaknanda River.

As a result, the importance of the Brahmakapali Teerth is linked to the narrative. The Pandavas’ Story

Pind Daan was also done here by the Pandavas for the sake of their families’ tranquillity. The Pandavas, according to Shrimad Bhagwat Mahapuran, sinned killing the gotra after killing their siblings and sisters in the fight. While on the Swargarohini Yatra, the Pandavas offered their forefathers in the Brahmakapal to atone for the sin of killing the gotra. The Puranas claim that this place is home to famous ascetics and saintly souls. Great spirits reside here in subtle form, according to Shrimad Bhagwat Purana. Pind Daan, which is done at Brahma Kapali, is the last. After then, no Pind Daan or Shradh Karma for the ancestor is performed. Lord Brahma is said to reside in the shape of Brahma Kapal. Brahma had five heads once upon a time, one of which was cut off and dropped here. On the banks of the Alaknanda river, a boulder in the shape of Brahmaji’s head can still be found. Every year during Pitru Paksha, there is a large throng from Bhadrapada Shukla Purnima to Ashwin Krishna Amavasya. Brahma Kapal is considered the ultimate pilgrimage (Mahatirtha) for achieving ancestral salvation. In the Puranas, it is stated that after donating Pind in Brahmakapal, Pind Daan is no longer required. Gaya, Pushkar, Haridwar, Prayagraj, and Kashi are also ideal for Pind Daan, according to Skanda Purana, but Pind Daan done in Brahmakapal in Bhu-Vaikunth Badrinath Dham is eight times more productive than others. Shiva was set free from the guilt of slaying Brahma on the Brahma Kapalal, because he had decapitated Brahma’s fifth head.

According to the Puranas, salvation is attained by Brahmagyan, Gaya Shradh, death in a cowshed, and residency in Kurukshetra.
