KEDARNATH 
The Himalayan abode of Lord Maheswar

The Rudra Himalaya region is dotted with scores of spots associated with the sports of Lord Siva. Amongst them Gourikund deserves some space here. It has some hot springs and it is from this place trekking or riding to the shrine starts. Pilgrims invariably commence their yatra after a dip in this Kund. Apart from the sanctity, the thrill of taking a bath in the steaming hot waters, nearing boiling point drives away all the chill - sins sticking on to physical bodies and they feel ifting of their souls to be hurled at the holy feet of the Lord Maheswar, the Omni  compassionate among the Trio. 

It is quite refreshing and this memorable experience gets locked up in their minds to be cherished for ever. Tradition records that Rarvathi took bath sere after delivering Karthikeya, the commander-in-chief of Deva Sena. Another place of interest is Trijuginarayana. Puranas credit it with the association of the Lord's marriage with Parvathi and the fire enkindled during the wedding is still burning at this spot. Pilgrims offer prayers with elaborate rituals.
