At Yamunotri & Gangotri, the pilgrims are cleansed body & soul
and with having achieved purity in that sense, pilgrims to Sri
Kedarnath becomes most rewarding.
It is also customary to worship Lord Shiva with water of Ganga, which pilgrims going from Gangotri as well take some there to Kedarnath. Kedarnath is the seat of Lord Shiva.
It is one of the twelve "Jyotirlingas" of Lord Shiva. Lying at an altitude of 3584 m at the head of river Mandakini, the shrine of Kedarnath is amongst the holiest pilgrimage for the Hindus.
It is no wonder that Adi Guru Shankaracharya - a great scholar &
saint, chose to enshrine Lord Shiva in this land, where the
unholy becomes oly and the holy becomes holier.
It is the place where Lord Shiva absolved Pandavas from the sin of killing their own cousins Kauravas in the battle of Kurukshetra.
At Kedarnath there are several Kunds (pools, tanks) that are
known for their religious significans - shivkund, Retkund,
hanskund, Udakkund, Rudhirkund are the most important.
