Kedarnath Temple is one of the holiest Hindu temples dedicated to Shiva and is located on the Garhwal Himalayan range near the Mandakini river in Kedarnath, Uttarakhand. The history of Kedarnath dham dates back to the ancient ages.
Lord Shiva is worshipped as Kedarnath, the 'Lord of Kedar Khand', the historical name of the region. The entire valley of Kedar is completely drenched in a feeling of historical relevance and deep unmatched spirituality owing to its magnificent, historical & mythological account.
Due to extreme weather conditions, the temple is open only between the end of April (Akshay trutya) to Kartik Purnima (the autumn full moon) every year. During the winters, the vigrahas (deities) from Kedarnath temple are brought to Ukhimath and worshipped there for six months.
