KEDARNATH 
The Himalayan abode of Lord Maheswar  

THE TEMPLE

The temple thus came into existence is modest in dimensions yet majestic in appearance with its gilded steeple piercing into azure sky and shining bright against the back drop of snowcapped mountains. It is built of dressed stone treasuring up sculptural wealth of rare kind. Though the exterior is bereft of either architectural excellences, or sculptural embellishments, the inside is adorned with marvelous images of supreme craftsmanship that wring veneration from the devotees. It has two parts  the mandap and the garbha griha. In the girbha griha, there is seen an irregularly shaped conical rock measuring about five feet by four feet and is worshipped as Lord Maheswar-Kedareswar. The local name for this is Siva Pinda. According to tradition, it is the rump of the bull, the form which the Lord assumed at the time of the Pandavas nearing Him. There are many beautiful idols on the walls representing the sports of the Lord. Nandi - the divine vehicle of the Lord arrests the attention of the on-lookers by its unusual size and sculptural beauty.
