One of the notable attractions in Joshimath is the Kalpavriksha tree, believed to be around 1200 years old, adding to the town's religious allure. The town is pervaded with spiritual significance, housing many temples including the Narasimha temple dedicated to the incarnation of Lord Vishnu along with other temples like Ganesh temple, Nau Devi temple, Gaurishankar, and Hanuman Temple, due to this, Joshimath draws a huge number of tourists every year.
