Kedareshvara alias Kedareshwar temple, dedicated to Lord Shiva is a river
temple situated right on the banks of the Ganga at the top of Kedar Ghat.
The stone Shiva lingam is said to have been appeared spontaneously and
a visit to this temple is believed to give one the fruits of a visit to
the great Kedareshvara Temple at Himalayas. Legends has it that a pure
hearted devotee of Lord Shiva prayed for a chance to visit the famous
Kedareshvara temple in the Himalayas. Please by the devotion, instead
of bringing him to the mountain, the Lord brought his lingam which is
emerged out of a plate of rice and lentils, to the devotee. It is this
lingam that can be seen on the rough surface of the natural stone.
