According to prophecy, when Kaliyug will befall on mankind, the left hand of idol of Lord Narsingh at Narsingh Temple of Joshimath broke down, the mountains of Nar and Narayan mountains will block the route to Badrinath. When the shrine will become inaccessible, Lord Badri will appear here. After that Lord Vishnu, in his 10th incarnation as Kalki, destroys the world bringing Kaliyug to an end and Satyug will begin again and Badrinath Dham will be re-establish at Bhavishya Badri.
