Named after the legendary Hindu King Kedar who lived in the ancient Hindu era of the Satya Yuga, Kedarnath is one of the most important Hindu pilgrimage sites. Kedarnath is a part of the Chota Char Dham pilgrimage. The town, although being a pilgrim spot since the ancient times, was accessible by pilgrims only through hiking. It was only after the 1962 Sino-Indian wars did the Indian government made some major infrastructural developments like roads and highways. This made the town accessible to more and more pilgrims and it became a part of their yearly religious affairs. Here’s a list of the best places you can visit in the holy town of Kedarnath.
