Madhmaheshwar temple opening date – 2018

The Madhmaheshwar temple opened on 21st May, 2018 this year. Madhmaheshwar is one of the Panch Kedar temples, the other four being Kedarnath, Tungnath, Rudranath, Kalpeshwar. Legend has it that Lord Shiva, unwilling to give darshan to the Pandavas who had killed their own kinsmen, the Kauravas, dived into the earth at Kedarnath and His naval portion reappeared at Madamaheshwar. Madmheshwar is therefore one of the Panch Kedars, meaning one of the five Shiva shrines. The temple opens some time very close to the day when the temples of Sri Kedarnath and Sri Badrinath open and closes for winters on dates fixed by the pujaries. During the winters Lord Madmheshwar moves down to Ukhimath and is worshipped in the temple of Lord Onkareshwar.

There are two options to trek to Madhmaheshwar as follows: 

The trek option 1 :
Those who may enjoy walking all the way from Guptakashi to Madmaheshwar without caring for a motor ride and interested in an opportunity for paying obeisance at the feet of Goddess Durga at Kalimath.
