History Of Kedarnath Temple ( Kedarnath Yatra )
The history of this religious temple Kedarnath was started at the time of Mahabharat when the Pandavs killed their cousin brother Kauravs. The story is very long but I will try to explain it in a short way. So, when Pandavas killed Kauravas after they feel sorry for him. I mean they are in guilt that they not had to do this.
Then they all looking for Lord Shiva to forgive them. But Lord Shiva doesn’t want to forgive them easily. So Lord Shiva disguised or convert himself into a Bull. Then Lord Shiva or the Bull discovered by the Pandavs when they were divided into the ground. Then Bhim try’s to catch the Bull but he can only catch the bull from his lump. And then the Bull divided into 5 parts and fall at different places.
So, according to the old persons or Mahatmas and Sadhu’s that the parts of the body of that bull appeared in 5 places on earth. And one of the parts of that bull was founded at Kedarnath and the other 4 are in Tuganath, Mahabaleshwar, Rudranath, Kalpeshwar and these 5 places are known as Panch Kedar. That’s why their Kedarnath temple was made and the temple dedicates to Lord Shiva.
And not only in Kedarnath also in Panch Kedar. Means Kedarnath is divided into 5 places which are called Panch Kedar. I will give you the information about Panch Kedar next.
