Madamaheshwar (3500 m) is an ancient temple of lord Shiva. It is believed that this temple is constructed by Bheem (2nd brother of Pandavas).
As per legend, after killing their relatives, friends, brothrs at the war, Pandavas intended to visit Lord Shiva to wash their sins. Being incensed by the death and dishonesty at the Kurukshetra war Lord Shiva wanted to avoid Pandavas and therefore, he disguised in the form of a bull (Nandi) and disappeared into the ground with different parts of the body appearing at various places. Lord Shiva is worshipped in the form of navel - shaped lingum in Madhmaheshwar.
Madhmaheshwar is the second temple in the series of holy Panch Kedar, first one being Kedarnath.
