During the most terrible 2013 landslide and floods in the area, how the temple withstood the harsh natural disaster without even a slight crack in its structure is still a subject of speculating even to geologists and architects. In India, Hindu of temple architects of the Vedic era uses a Vedic temple design based on Vastu Shastra. A temple which is built with Vastu Shastra is a source of good and positive energies.

It is also a famous Hindu pilgrimage site in India. The 14 kilometers up-hill, extend lead to the temple has to be either tracked or reached through horse or maintain facilities.
Mythological Background of Kidarnath
Pandavas undertook a Yatra in search of noble Shiva to forgive themselves of the sins resulting from the Mahabharata conflict.

Bhima pulled the tail of the bull and the bull break apart itself in 2 with the front fraction falling in Nepal becoming Doleshwar Mahadev in Sipadol and the back part fell in Kidarnath becoming Kedareshwar.
At Kedarnath, a triangle shaped lineage can be seen and Lord Shiva exposed himself to Pandavas. Realizing that it was with Shiva that he fought; Bhima was taken to regret and asked for I beg your pardon?. Kedareshwar told the Pandavas that the followers having his Darshan their shall achieve faithfulness.
