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 remaining portions
of Lord Shiva appeared at four other places and are worshipped there as his
