The Kedarnath shrine is one of the 12 jyotirlingas of Lord Shiva, situated against the backdrop of the magnificent Kedarnath range. Legend has it that after the battle of Mahabharata, Pandavas were filled with guilt and grief of having killed their own cousins and decided to seek the blessings of Lord Shiva for redemption. However, Lord Shiva eluded them and took refuge at Kedarnath in the form of a bull and when followed by Pandavas, he dived into the ground, leaving his hump behind. It is believed that the arms of Lord Shiva appeared at Tungnath, the face at Rudranath, his belly at Madmaheshwar and his head with hair at Kalpeshwar.
