Story of Kedarnath – 1
According to Skanda Purana, Kedarnath history – once Maa Parvati asked Lord Shiva why this region is so significant for you. Then Lord Shiva replied- Kedar region is very dear to him He always resides here with his followers. He has been residing in this region since he incarnated as a form of Brahma, to form the cosmos.

Story of Kedarnath -3
After the Kurukshetra war, the Pandava brothers came here to meet Shiva on the advice of the sage Vyasa because they wanted to seek forgiveness for killing their kin during the war.
However, Shiva didn’t want to forgive them: so he turned into a bull and hide among the cattle on the hill. When the Pandavas managed to track him, he tried to disappear by sinking himself, head-first into the ground.
One of the Pandavas Bhim grabbed his tail, forcing him to appear before them and forgive them. The Pandava brothers then built the first temple at Kedarnath.
The portion of Shiva’s body later appeared at four other locations, and collectively these five locations or places came to known as the five Kedars (Panch Kedar). Hump appeared in Kedarnath, head of the bull appeared at the location of the Pashupati Nath Temple in Nepal.
Four other parts of the bull appeared, respectively, arms in Tungnath, face in Rudranath, navel at Madya Maheshwari, the hair at Kalpeshwar.
