Makkumath – Winter Seat of Tungnath

It is renowned as the winter seat of Tungnath, one of the Panch Kedar temples dedicated to Lord Shiva.During the harsh winter months when heavy snowfall blocks access to the higher altitudes where Tungnath is located, the deity and religious rituals are shifted to Makku math. This allows pilgrims and devotees to continue their worship and prayers without the challenges posed by extreme weather conditions. The significance of Makku math lies in its role as a sanctuary for religious practices, ensuring continuity in the worship of Tungnath even when the main temple is inaccessible due to snow.
