There is a samadhi of Shankaracharya ji in the back side of the temple. The construction period of this temple by Rahul Sankrityayan is said to be between 10th and 12th century.

This temple is a wonderful and attractive specimen of architecture. The sharp rock in the sanctum sanctorum of the temple is worshiped in the form of Lord Shiva in the form of Sadashiv.

To reach Kedarnath, via Guptkashi from Rudraprayag one has to travel 20 km further to Gaurikund, by motorway and 14 km on foot, passing through moderate and steep slopes.

The temple is built on the ghat of Mandakini, there is darkness inside and only with the help of lamp, Shankar ji has darshan. Shivling is self-existent.

On the front side, the pilgrims offer water and flowers and on the other hand offering ghee to the Lord, they meet with full arms, the idol is four cubits long and one and a half hands thick.
