Kedarnath - The Third Dham

The majestic Kedarnath Temple, cupped by lofty and stunning peaks of the Gharwal Himalayas, is set in the beautiful Mandakini valley at an attitude of 3,581 m. Kedarnath is Lord Shiva's territory. The Temple is believed to have been built by the Pandavas, as a tribute to Lord Shiva, who forgave them for killing their brothers (Kauravas) after an exciting chase through the Himalayas.
