KEDARNATH 
The Himalayan abode of Lord Maheswar

It is the self-same region, where Arjuna did severe penance to please Maheswar for the boon of Pasupata, the most potent among all the astras; the very same place pervaded by the apurva sourabha of the flower Kalyana saugandhika, for procuring of which Bhima fought against Kubera; the very same place containing the sarmadhi of Jagadguru Sri Sankaracharya; the self same sacred point, where the Pandavas built the temple and consecrated in this yuga by Adi Sankara and enjoying the privilege of the head priest - Rawal appointed for the first time by himself, the practice of which is being carried on even to the present day. 

It is this mountainous terrain that gives birth to several holy rivers like Mandakini etc. It is here in this precincts Lord Maheswar abides and worshipped by the lesser ranks of gods for six months and the rest of the year by the humans, according to the wish of the sages. With many more of such celebrated spots this hoary region has become Ian eternal inspiration for devout people right from the Dwapara yuga to the present time.
