These temples hold immense significance in Hindu mythology and are esteemed pilgrimage sites for devotees of Lord Shiva. Each of the five temples is associated with a distinct part of the bull form of Lord Shiva, which he assumed while hiding from the Pandavas. 1. Kedarnath: The most prominent and northernmost of the Pancha Kedar, Kedarnath is associated with the hump of the bull. It is also one of the twelve Jyotirlingas and is situated at an impressive altitude of 3,583 meters. 2. Tungnath: Associated with the arms of Shiva, Tungnath is the highest Shiva temple in the world, located at an altitude of 3,680 meters. It's renowned for its breathtaking scenery and panoramic views. 3. Rudranath: This temple represents the face of Lord Shiva. Nestled in a natural rock temple, it offers a serene and mystical environment, surrounded by dense forests. 4. Madhyamaheshwar: Symbolizing the navel of Lord Shiva, this temple is situated at an altitude of 3,497 meters. It's known for its classic architecture and spiritual ambiance. 5. Kalpeshwar: The only Pancha Kedar temple accessible throughout the year, Kalpeshwar holds the hair locks (jata) of Lord Shiva. It's located in the beautiful Urgam Valley. The pilgrimage to these temples is not just a journey through beautiful landscapes but also a spiritual quest, symbolizing a path of penance, devotion, and enlightenment. It is believed in the tradition that one who undertakes and completes Pancha Kedar Yatra, attains Moksha. Each temple has its unique history and significance. This yatra is an opportunity for devotees to immerse themselves in the divine aura of Lord Shiva, seeking blessings and spiritual growth.
