KEDARESHWAR TEMPLE

Overview

The Kedareshwar temple is dedicated to the Hindu God, Shiva. This is a well known medieval Shiva temple established in 1753 by the king from Ahom dynasty, Rajeswar Singha, according to the inscription written on the walls of the temple. The shrine is situated on top of the small hill called Madanchalla. The uniqueness of this temple lies in the fact that it has the rare self originated phallic symbol, or Swayambhu Linga, that too in the Ardhanariswara, or androgynous form. The linga is generally kept covered in a metal bowl. Historically, this is one of the most important temples in India. And therefore, apart from the religious pilgrimage, history and archeology enthusiasts also often visit this beautiful temple of Shiva.
