Kedarnath Dham in Char Dham
Kedarnath finds its mention in Mahabharata as the place where lord Shiva hide himself from Pandavas when they came searching for him to seek forgiveness from their sins committed at the battlefield of Mahabharata by killing near ones. Situated in the Rudraprayag district of Uttarakhand, Kedarnath is the most remote pilgrimage spot in the yatra.
It is believed that originally the temple of Kedarnath was built by Pandavas. Adi Shankaracharya got the present structure constructed in the 8th century adjacent to the old temple site. The grey stone structure is an architectural marvel because of its imposing design and its ability to survive for so many centuries in such a harsh terrain.
