KEDARNATH 
The Himalayan abode of Lord Maheswar

THE EPIC EVIDENCE

The epic Mahabharata is fristled with many an awe-inspiring event, enacted on this Punya Kshetra, displaying the illustrious and exemplary prowess and spiritual glory of the Pandavas. Bharavi's Kiratharjuneyam embodies the thrilling and exiting episodes of Arjuna's peerless skill in the archery that won from Lord Maheswar, the much coveted Pasupatastra. The Lord it appears was more pleased with Arjuna s unparalleled dauntlessness and sublime large-hearted manliness than the penance, he did on the Indrakila parvatha. Yudishthira was initiated by Veda Yyasa on this punya bhoomi. 

To cap all as it were, when advised by the elderly wise men, the Pandavas came to this Kshetra to atone the sins of Kurukshetra war, but Lord Maheswar seeing them approaching at the time set apart for the gods only, assumed the form of bull and started running away. When the Pandavas tried to catch Him, He entered the Earth, so only the rump-the hind parts of His body remained at this place and He is worshipped as Kedareswar.
