The Madhyamaheshwar Omkareshwar Temple is an integral part of the great Panch Kedar and is dedicated to Lord Shiva. It is simply known as Ukhimath Omkareshwar Temple. During the winters, the idols from Kedarnath temple and Madhyamaheshwar are brought to Ukhimath and worshipped here for six months. Ukhimath is a small pilgrimage town in the Rudraprayag District of Uttarakhand. No one from here is believed to leave empty-handed. The devotees here are showered with the blessings of Lord Shiva.
One of the oldest temples in the country, the Omkareshwar Temple houses the deities of Kedarnath and Madmaheswar during the winter months. The temple of Kedarnath and Madhmaheshwar remains closed at this time of the year. Also, the water that confines within the walls of this temple is considered to be highly sacred as even a few drops of it could lead to complete purification. Moreover, the beguiling place within which it is located adds to its miraculous charm. Hence, visiting the temple not only lets you seek Lord Shiva's protection, but also makes you a part of the everlasting prettiness of nature.
