The Himalayan abode of Lord Maheswar 


Kedarnath temple, enshrining one of the twelve jyotirlingas of our Punya Bharat Varsha is situated on the Himalayan slope in the Gharwal district of Uttar Pradesh. It has several unique features that have riot been enjoyed by any other Saiva Kshetra, existing since Dwapara Yuga. Sacred Vedas and epics, ithihasas and samhithas embody numerous references and bring out its glory in glowing terms, filling in hundreds of pages of every genre of our literature. They highlight justifiably its sanctity and prove its uniqueness from the stand point of its location in the. snow clad peaks; habitation of Lord Maheswar Himself for six months a year, and visitation by celestials periodically. 

The famous shrine located at an elevation of 11735 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.
