Mysterical facts about Kedareshwar Cave
In the cave’s center sits a Shiva Linga that is around five feet tall. To get to the Shiva Linga, one must wade through waist-deep, ice-cold water. Only one of the four pillars that once surrounded the Linga is still standing. Some believe the pillars, Satya, Tretha, Dwapara, and the Kali Yuga, are emblems of yugas or periods of time. The current pillar is thought to represent the Kali Yug, which is the last and last yuga. As a result, there is a belief that the world will end when the final and surviving pillar cracks.
