Doleshwor Mahadeva Temple, in the Suryabinayak Municipality, is the Head Part of Kedarnath Temple, in Uttarakhand, India. The temple is dedicated to Doleshwor Mahadeva and is a must-visit for any pilgrims visiting Nepal. An hour and a half of driving from Kathmandu will take us to the holy temple.

This temple is under construction and the main temple houses the doleshwar mahadev which is believed to be the head of kedarnath. The area is big, place beautiful,road bit curvy and bumpy. Yet worth visiting , more for religious Hindus.

I met someone at the airport who told me about this place and man!, good that we took their advice and visited this place. It is a hidden gem and Nepal tourism must advertize this more than any other place. The place was destroyed by the quake and is being renovated. It is related to the Kedarnath temple so a must visit.

Doleshwor temple is taken as a head of kedarnath.For many years people have been searching for the head of (Hindu deity) Kedarnath who assumed the shape of a bull to avoid the five Pandava brothers, the heroes of the Mahabharat. The legend goes back to the fabled battle of Kurukshetra fought between the five Pandava brothers and their cousins, the 100 Kaurava brothers, which is the pivot of the Mahabharata. The Pandavas won, but sorrowed by the loss of lives, they renounced the kingdom they had wrested back and headed for the heavenly abode of the gods, believed to be atop the mighty Himalayan Mountains. The Pandavas reached the Kedarnath region to seek forgiveness from Lord Shiva for the loss of lives during the 18-day Mahabharata war. But Lord Shiva was not ready to forgive them and he took the form of a bull to avoid them. The Pandavas soon realized that the bull was Lord Shiva and tried to stop it by pulling its tail. Suddenly the head got separated from the body of the bull and the Pandavas could not locate it. The hump-backed structure at Uttarakhand’s Kedarnath temple is worshipped as the torso of the holy bull. The Hindu activist Bharat Jangam had been researching and claiming that Doleshwar Mahadev is the head part of Kedarnath based on the surprising links between Kedarnath and Doleshwor. The Sculptures of Shive found in both shrines are 4,000 years old. Even a stone scripture found in Doleshwor was written in Kannada, an Indian language.The priests in both shrines are selected from Indian’s southern states of Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Kerala and Tamil Nadu. Both priests affix the word ‘ling’ after their names to convey their proximity to the god as his worshipper and both temples have a cluster of five Shiva shrines. The main deity of both priests is Birbhadra, a companion of Shiva, according to Hindu scriptures. In August 22, 2009 the head priest of Kedarpeeth Shree 1008 Jagat Guru Bheemashankarling Shivacharya unveiled the plaque claiming that Doleswore Mahadev, located in Jangam math Bhaktapur, is the head part of Shri Kedarnath. He performed Rudra Abhishek, a special worshipping at the Doleshwor temple situated in Sipadol village of Bhaktapur district.

This temple had got the less priority from the Hindus not knowing the importance or value of the temple for hundred of years. According to the priest of the temple, the statue of Doleshwor Mahadev originated 5000 years ago. The temple has been completely destroyed by the earthquake of 2015 and the construction work is going on but the temple is open to the locals.
