The Kedarnath Dham or Temple is one among 12 Jyotirlingas of Bhagwan Shiva, situated on the Garhwal Himalayan range near the Mandakini river in Uttarakhand.
According to the legend, after defeating Kauravas in Mahabharat, Pandavas wished to atone for the sins of committing gotra hatya and Brāhmana hatya during the war and started searching lord Shiva to seek his blessings. First Pandavas went Varanasi, but Bhagwan Shiv wanted to avoid them and took the form of a bull ( Nandi ) and hid in the Garhwal region.
In search of lord Shiva, Pandavas went to Garhwal Himalayas where Bhima saw a bull grazing near Guptkashi and immediately recognized the bull to be Bhagwan Shiva. When Bhima caught the tail and hind leg of the bull, the bull-formed Bhagwan Shiva immediately disappeared into the ground to later reappear in parts.
Bhagwan Shiva as bull reappeared in 5 different forms, with the hump raising in Kedarnath temple, the arms appearing in Tungnath, the face showing up at Rudranath, the nabhi (navel) and stomach surfacing in Madhyamaheshwar and the hair appearing in Kalpeshwar.
