Kedarnath is worshipped at the Omkareshwar temple in Ukhimath when the gates of the Himalayan temple are closed owing to snowbound circumstances in the area during the winter.
As per Gaud, the panchmukhi (five-faced) idol of Lord Shiva will be taken to Kedarnath on May 2 in an exquisite palanquin decked with flowers from the Omkareshwar temple.
