About Kedarnath Temple
Considered as one of the important among the 12 jyotirlingas, Kedarnath is located on the snow-class Garhwal Mountain Range with its temple near Mandakini River. According to Hindu Mythology, when Pandavas were praying for absolution from the guilt of killing Kauravas *their blood relatives) after Mahabharata, Lord Shiva disguised himself as a bull to avoid them to grant their wish.
