Kedarnath Situated on the banks of the Mandakini River, Kedarnath is one of the four major Hindu pilgrim centres in Uttarakhand (Himalayan Uttara Pradesh). Although chiefly well-known as a religious centre, this place, surrounded by mountain ranges, also attracts tourists because of its beautiful landscape.

Main Attractioins

The most famous monument of Kedarnath is the Kedarnath Temple. It is devoted to Shiva (Destroyer in the Hindu Holy Trinity of Creator-Preserver-Destroyer) who is worshipped chiefly in the structure of a linga(symbolic phallus of Shiva).
 The jyotirlinga(the phallus of light) in this temple is one of the twelve jyotirlingasthroughout India, which makes Kedarnath one of the most blessed Hindu cities.
The difference between a jyotirlingaand an regular lingais that even as the former derives power from inside itself, the latter is provide with mantra-shakti(power of a verse or phrase that has magical efficiency) by priests. Myth has it that the Temple was built by the Pandavas (the heroes of the epic, Mahabharata) to redeem themselves for the sins they had dedicated during the Bharata War (for more detail about the Bharata War see early Scriptures). Leaving by this reckoning, the temple should be extremely ancient, probably dating back to the pre-Christian era.
However evidence shows that it was built in the 8th century a.d. As a matter of truth, in the 8th century a.d., the temple was reconstruct and restore by Shankaracharaya (for further detail see History of Kerala) who also recognized a matha(Hindu monastic establishment) at Badrinath.

Since the temple is situated on the snow-white heights of the Himalayas, the entrance into the temple is restricted during winter. As a result, it is open six months a year, from May to October.
