What is the significance of Chardham for Hindus?


Kedar is another name for 'Lord Shiva,' and Nath stands for 'Lord.' According to legends, Kedarnath is the holy abode of Lord Shiva, where he resides in the form of Linga. It is also a prominent site among the 12 Jyotirlingas. After Mahabharata, Pandavas were guilty of killing their brothers (Kauravas) and wanted to seek apologies from Lord Shiva. They traveled through Kashi and Guptkashi in search of Lord Shiva for easy ablution from their sins.


But Lord Shiva hid in the idol of buffalo and got inside the earth. While sinking, Bheem holds the leg and tail of the buffalo from behind to stop it from sinking into the earth. In this juggle, the different buffalo parts fell to five parts of the earth. These five places are collectively known as Panch Kedar. The arms fell at Tungnath, face at Rudranath, hair at Kalpeshwar, stomach at Madhyamaheswar, and Hump at Kedarnath.


Pandavas built five temples at the respective places in Panch Kedar and meditated at Kedarnath Dham to attain salvation and moksha. Hence, the journey to Kedarnath is considered the path of salvation and moksha in Hinduism.
