Kedarnath Mandir, Kedarnath
Categories: Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
Visit Kedarnath Mandir, one of the most important Shiva temples in India, by trekking, horse-riding, or helicopter transport. Because of the extreme and unstable weather the temple is open only between the end of April and November. During the winter the deities are relocated to Ukhimath. Trek the 14 km (8.7 mi) uphill trail and be rewarded with spectacular views from the mountain. Grab a bite and refreshment at the stalls along the trail. The road is well maintained and kept clean. Don’t go on foot if you’re not prepared for a difficult hike. Book the helicopter in advance. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Kedarnath holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Kedarnath Mandir and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

जय श्री केदारनाथ जी की !! The temple, at an height of 3,583 m (11,755 ft), is the highest among the twelve Jyotirlinga temples, reachable 220 km from Rishikesh by road and then 23km trek from Sonaprayag, situated on the shores of Mandakini river, a tributary of Ganga, is an impressive stone edifice of unknown date.The structure is believed to have been constructed in the 8th century AD, when Adi Shankara visited. The present structure is on a site adjacent to where Pandavas are believed to have built the temple. It has on Garbhagriha and a Mandapa and stands on a plateau surrounded by snow clad mountain and glaciers. In front of the temple, directly opposite to inner shrine, is a Nandi statue carved out of rock. Due to extreme weather conditions, the temple is open only between the end of April or early May (Akshaya Tritriya) to Kartik Purnima (the autumn full moon, usually November). During the winters, the vigrahas (deities) from Kedarnath temple are brought to Ukhimath and worshiped there for six months. Lord Shiva is worshiped as Kedarnath, the 'Lord of Kedar Khand', the historical name of the region. Behind the temple is the samādhi mandir of Adi Sankara, where he attained Mahasamadhi.
