History of Panch Kedar

According to legends, the Pandavas were guilty of killing their cousins & relatives, in the battle of Mahabharata. In order to get rid of their sins, they went in search of Lord Shiva to seek his blessings. But Lord Shiva was deeply annoyed with Pandavas & took refuge in the form of a bull at Kedarnath. When Pandavas came to know about his location, they approached him but Lord Shiva disappeared into the ground. Later his body parts reappeared at different locations which are popularly known as Panch Kedar. His Hump appeared in Kedarnath, Arms surfaced at Tungnath, face at Rudranath & hairs at Kapleshwar.
