Brahmakamal or Sassurea obvallata grows in  the himalayas at heights from 3000 to 4600 meters. The flowerhead is purple but is covered in layers of papery boat shaped bracts which is essential for its flowering at such heights as it gives warmth. .It is native to Himalayaas especially the region around valley of flowers and Hemkund etc. It is the state flower of Uttarakhand. Yes, it is offered to Badrinath at the temple.
