Madmaheshwar Temple is located in the close vicinity of the source of the Madmaheshwar River. Nestled at an elevation of 3289 m above sea level, this shrine is regarded as the second Kedar. According to legends, when lord Shiva was hiding from the Pandavas, he buried himself at Kedarnath to avoid them. His body appeared here at Madmaheshwar. The temple is closed for six months in winter and during this time, the silver idols of this temple are transferred to Ukhimath. This place also offers the opportunity to visit nearby tourist attractions like Kali temple, Kedarnath, Saraswati kund, and the peaks of Chaukhamba Neelkanth.
