Kedarnath is one of the twelve Jyotirlingas of Lord Shiva, and is located at the source of the river Mandakini. Kedarnath is also one of the most important temples in the Himalayas, amongst the major Shiva temples of the country.
The statue of Nandi, the divine bull of Shiva, stands at the entrance of the temple. The wall inside the temple, is exquisitely carved with images, and the temple houses a Shiva lingam, which is worshipped by hordes of pilgrims.
