KEDARNATH - KEDAR SAMBHU JYOTIRLINGA

The famous shrine located at an elevation of 11,735 feet above sea-level, the highest point among the hill temples is visited by ardent pilgrim in millions every year. It is nestled in the Rudra Himalaya, an integral part of the Himalayas and this region is called by many different names, such as Gandhamadana parvatha, Sumera parvatha, Pancha parvatha etc. The last is named so due to the fact of its having five sacred peaks, namely Rudra Himalaya, Vishnupuri, Brahmapuri, Udayagiri Kanna and Swargarohini. The celebrated Swargarohini trodden by the Pandava brothers and Droupadi to reach heaven is one among the five peaks mentioned in the Mahabaratha in detail. Around the Kshetra lie several spots exuding divine aroma, all but telling about Lord Maheswar's sports and illustrious anecdotes in particular relating to the life of His divine consort Uma, One for Vinayaka called Munda katta Ganesh Mandir--the place where Maheswar blessed Vinayaka with elephant head.
