"According to the auspicious date fixed on the occasion of Vijayadashmi today, the temple will close at 3.35 PM on November 27 this year," said chief of Badrinath Kedarnath Temple Committee Ganesh Godiyal.

The three other dhams Yamunotri, Gangotri and Kedarnath will close this month only.

While Gangotri shrine will close the next day after Diwali, Yamunotri and Kedarnath temples will close on Bhaiya Dooj.

All the four dhams are closed for devotees every year in October-November due to heavy snowfall. They reopen in April- May.
