Mythology about Madmaheshwar

Madmaheshwar is the second temple in the series of the sacred Panch Kedar, with Kedarnath being the first. According to the legend, after the war where the Pandavas had to fight and defeat their own cousins, they sought Lord Shiva to seek forgiveness for their sins. However, Lord Shiva, still upset about the war’s destruction and dishonesty, tried to avoid them. In order to escape their presence, Lord Shiva transformed into a bull, Nandi, and went into the ground, with different parts of his body emerging at various locations. In Madmaheshwar, Lord Shiva is worshipped in the form of a navel-shaped lingam
