Spiritual Kedarnath - 7 Days

Why You Should go Kedarnath ?


Kedarnath , the divine abode of Lord Shiva is considered as one of the holiest destinations of Hindu Pilgrimage. It is one of the 12 Jyotirlingas of Lord Shiva. It is located in the lap of Himalayas at an astonishing altitude of 3584 meters above sea level near the Mandakini river It is the most remote of the 4 Char Dham sites and is flanked by breathtaking snow clad peaks of Garhwal range.
 It is said that the temple came in existence when the Pandavas came in search of Lord Shiva to atone their sins. But Lord Shiva avoided them and stopped here in the form of a bull. It is said that the stone like structure that is worshipped there is the hump of the bull. The arms of the bull appeared at Tungnath, the face at Rudranath, the belly at Madhyamaheshwar and his hair locks with head at Kalpeshwar. Kedarnath and the 4 above mentioned shrines are treated as Panch Kedar. Although it sounds like the trip to Kedarnath is spiritual and is for elderly people, the trip is full of adventure. Worshipping before the Lord is never old school and Kedarnath Yatra will clear your mind and soul inside out and in turn will turn you into a pure hearted individual once again.
