Kedarnath Temple is not accessible by road; one must trek from Gaurikund to Kedarnath temple, which is roughly 22 kilometers. Pony, Palanquin & Helicopter services are also available to reach the temple.

Significance of Kedarnath

It is claimed that after the great Kurukshetra battle, Pandava desired to atone for the crimes of committing fratricide (Gotrahatya) and Brahmanahatya (killing of Brahmins, the priest class) during the conflict. So in the quest for Shiva, they got here. Still, Shiva wished to avoid the Pandavas since he was highly angered by the murders and dishonesty during the Kurukshetra battle and was indifferent to the Pandavas’ petitions. Consequently, he adopted the shape of a bull (Nandi) and hid in the Garhwal area.

When the Pandavas managed to follow and discover him in this place, he sought to vanish by lowering himself head-first into the earth. Bhima (The second brother of Pandava) grasped his tail, making him stand before them and pardon them. The part of Shiva’s body in the shape of Nandi occurs at four different spots, and together, these areas are referred to as Panch Kedar. These Panch Kedar locations include Kedarnath (Hump Portion), Tungnath (Arms), Madhyamaheshwar (Nabhi & Stomach), Rudranath (Face), Kalpeshwar (Hair), and Pashupatinath, Nepal (Head Portion).

The current temple, erected in the 8th century by Adi Shankaracharya, lies near the site of an ancient temple built by the Pandavas. Kedarnath’s significance is not limited to its religious importance but also its natural beauty. The temple is surrounded by lush green forests and snow-capped mountains, making it a perfect destination for nature lovers. The temple is also home to many rare species of flora and fauna, making it an excellent spot for wildlife enthusiasts.
