They are thinking:
"Not all those who wander are lost."

Ajeya,

Good observation.:)

As if being at a height of more than 10,000 feet above MSL was not enough, they were perched high up on an elevated platform (like an open balcony) of the temple, having a grand view of the activity below. I shot the picture and quickly moved away.;)

Anil,

Good observation. I was surprised at the temple colours too. They are like those used generally in Buddhist gompas. Let's remember its proximity to Tibet border. :)

There is a theory that the Badrinath temple was originally controlled by Buddhists, but how far that's true is unknown to me.
