Brahma Kapal holds special importance for Hindus as it is believed to be the place where people pay homage to the souls of their ancestors. The last rites of beloved elders are also performed at Brahma Kapal, a flat platform on the banks of River Alaknanda. It is located around 2 km from the hills of Badrinath. All the necessary materials required to perform the last rites of elders are easily available at nearby shops. It is believed that Lord Brahma resides at Brahma Kapal because of which the departed souls get salvation from the cycle of birth and death when their family members perform their last rites or shraddha karma here. You can find several pundits (priests) sitting here with samagri (materials) to perform the rituals.
