Mukesh Ambani, family members visit Badrinath, Kedarnath temples; donates Rs 5 cr

RISHIKESH (Uttarakhand), Oct 12: Reliance Industries chairman Mukesh Ambani visited the Badrinath and Kedarnath temples and offered prayers at the shrines on Thursday morning. He was accompanied by family members.

Badrinath-Kedarnath Temple Committee (BKTC) vice-president Kishore Pawar welcomed Ambani. He performed poojas at both the shrines and donated Rs 5 cr to the committee.

The shrine visit came after Ambani reclaimed the title of the richest Indian, replacing Adani Group chairman Gautam Adani. Adani had suffered an erosion of his wealth as a consequence of the Hindenburg Research report. Ambani's wealth registered a meteoric rise from Rs 1.65 lakh cr in 2014 to Rs 8.08 lakh cr in 2023. Adani wealth registered a slide to Rs 4.74 lakh cr, according to the Forbes India Rich List 2023.

Last year also the Ambanis visited the Badrinath and Kedarnath temples. They regularly visit various temples. Last month, Ambani visited the Siddhivinayak temple in Mumbai alongwith his wife Nita, elder son Akash Ambani, daughter-in-law Shloka Mehta and grandson Prithvi Ambani. Last year he visited Guruvayur temple in Kerala and donated Rs 1.5 cr for annadanam. Previously he had darshan at the Tirupati Venkateswara temple in Andhra Pradesh and donated Rs 1.5 cr to the temple trust.

More frequently Ambanis visit Rajasthan's Nathdwara Krishna temple, said to be his family deity.
