KEDARNATH 
The Himalayan abode of Lord Maheswar  

MODE AND PERIOD OF WORSHIP

Kedareswar is accessible for worship by mortals from April-the time when the sun enters Mesha, or Aries in Vaisakha to October, when he leaves for Scorpio. During the winter, Kedar Prabhu is worshipped by gods exclusively; and at that time a replica of the ford is worshipped by humans at Ukimath, lying at a distance of 60 Km. from the shrine; hence for mortals Ukimath is the permanent seat of worship. When. the temple is closed, the priests reside at Guptasaki and Ukimath. The speciality of the priests is that they claim descent from the Rawals - the High Priests appointed by the Adi Sankara himself, choosing from amongst Kerala brahmins of pure Aryan origin. Thus, the Namboodri brahmins are still holding the holy post.
