Kedarnath, which is built on the banks of Mandakini and Saraswati rivers, is among Panch Kedar -five shrines of Lord Shiva-established in the Garhwal region.

The government had taken up the uphill task to clear the snow by pressing dozers and reconstruct the huts damaged in the 15-20 feet heavy snowfall at Kedarnath area, situated at the height of 11,755 feet in Rudraprayag district.
