Description

The ‘Panch’ or five Kedars lie in the Kedar valley between the rivers Bhagirathi and Alaknanda. According to a mythological legend, after the battle of Mahabharta, the Pandavas repented the killings of their cousins Kauravas and came here seeking forgiveness from Lord Shiva. But, Shiva was not prepared to forgive them as they were guilty of gotra hatya. He disguised himself in the form of a bull at Kedarnath, but when Pandavas recognised the Lord in the form of a bull, he submerged into the ground leaving behind his hump, which is worshipped at the shrine of Kedarnath. His arms are believed to have appeared at Tungnath, his face at Rudranath, navel at Madmaheshwar, his matted hairs and head at Kalpeshwar. These five most sacred Shiva temples of Garhwal are called as Panch Kedar.
