History of Kedarkantha
In general, Uttarakhand is plashed with great religious sights. Lord Shiv’s Bull icon wandered in the region. He attained the form to escape from the Pandavas and meditated in the vale in his disguise.
Also, the original report says that the Trishul of the Lord, erected in the vale, keeps the place safe from destruction. There was ample evidence in their belief in 2013 when the vale suffered great losses due to massive cataracts in the region, but the Kedarnath tabernacle wasn’t harmed.
