Nar-Narayan did penance in Kedarnath region

According to the Kotirudra Samhita of Shivpurana, Nara-Narayana, an incarnation of Vishnu in Badrivan, did penance by making a Parthiv Shivling. Pleased with his tenacity, Shiva asked him to ask for a bride. Then Nara-Narayan asked that Shiva always remain in this area. Shivji gave the boon of staying here and said that this place will be famous as Kedar Kshetra. After this, Shivji merged into the Shivling here in Jyoti form.

Shivji gave darshan here to the Pandavas

Kedarnath is the third of the 4 dhams in Uttarakhand and the eleventh among the 12 Jyotirlingas. This is the highest Jyotirlinga. Here Shiva appeared in the form of a bell to the Pandavas. This temple was built by Adiguru Shankaracharya about 1000 years ago. The temple is situated at an elevation of 3,581 square meters and about 16 km from Gaurikund. There is a chapter named Kedarkhand in Skanda Purana. The importance of Kedarnath is also mentioned in this.
