Shri Kedarnath ji Yatra, the picturesque holy town, is located in Uttarakhand's Rudraprayag District on the bank of River Mandakini. The town hosts Kedarnath Temple where Lord Shiva is worshipped in the form of lingam.
Hindus from all over the world visit the temple which is counted among :
Four holy temples of chota chardham tours (Uttrakhand Char Dham)
Panch Kedar (5 holy Shiva temples in Uttarakhand)
Twelve Jyotirlingas (shrines where Lord Shiva is worshipped as a pillar of light)
275 Paadal Petra Sthalam (holy abodes of Lord Shiva in Asia)
Located at 3,584 m. above the sea level, Kedarnath is the remotest of the four Himalayan char dhams (other three being Badrinath, Gangotri and Yamunotri). Chorabari Glacier, which acts as
the source of River Mandakini, is located nearby. Kedarnath has mesmerizingly divine ambience guarded by snow-capped peaks and cool climate dominated by gentle breeze.
