the Pandavas after having won over the Kaurava in the Kurukshetra war, felt guilty of having killed their own brothers and
sought the blessings of Lord Shiva for redemption. He eluded them repeatedly and while fleeing took refuge at Kedarnath
in the form of a bull. On being followed he dived into the ground, leaving his hump on the surface. The r! emaining portions
of Lord Shiva appeared at four other places and are worshipped there as his manifestations. The arms appeared at
