“Lord of the Field” is how Kedarnath is translated. It is derived from the Sanskrit words kedara (“field”) and natha (“natha”) (“lord”). It is called after “the harvest of emancipation” that blossoms here, according to the text Kashi Kedara Mahatmya.
Kedarnath has been a pilgrimage centre from ancient times. The original Kedarnath Temple was not created by anyone and no one knows when it was built. The temple was built, according to legend, by the Pandava brothers, who appear in the Mahabharata.
Kedarnath, on the other hand, is not mentioned in the Mahabharata. Lord Shiva unleashed the sacred Ganges waters from his matted hair at Kedara (Kedarnath), resulting in the formation of the Ganges river, according to the Skanda Purana (c. 7th-8th century).
The Kedarnath Temple is the most famous attraction in Kedarnath, which is located in the Indian state of Uttarakhand. It is a Nagar panchayat in the Rudraprayag district.
