RUDRANATH TEMPLE, CHAMOLI
One of the five interrelated spots of the popular Panch Kedar, Rudranath Temple is situated in Chamoli district of Uttarakhand. The route to the temple is a little treacherous and considered to be the toughest among the five temples. The idol of Shiva remains covered with a mask which makes his look angry. However, during his daily bath when priests take off the mask his actual pleasing look can be witnessed. By the Rudranath Temple, the holy river Rudraganga flows which is also known as Vaitarani.
