Madhyamaheshwar Temple or Madmaheshwar Temple is an important Hindu temple dedicated to Lord Shiva. Situated at an altitude of 3,497m, the shrine is one amongst the ‘Panch Kedars’ or the five holy shrines of Shiva in the Himalayan ranges, which are believed to be built by the Pandavas. Among the five temples of Panch Kedar it is the second temple which is visited after Kedarnath.  The middle (madhya) or navel of the bull, considered a divine form of Shiva, is worshipped at this temple. There are two other smaller shrines, one for Shiva’s consort Parvati and the other dedicated to the Ardhanarishwara.

There is also an old temple known as Vriddh-Madmaheshwar, situated 2km away from Madhmaheshwar. The antique shrine is just a pile of stones but provides splendid panoramic views of Kedarnath, Neelkanth, Trishul, Kamet, Panchulli, Chaukhamba peaks, when one reaches a small lake close by the temple.

Other than a religious destination, Madhyamaheshwar is also famous as a trekking destination. Being one of the most beautiful treks in the Garhwal Himalayan region, this trek takes you high altitude meadows, a long range of Alpine trees rivulets, waterfalls, and takes you deepest part of Kedarnath, Sanctuary area. The temple is close for six month during winter when the silver idols are taken ceremonially to Ukhimath for worship.

Itinerary


Day01: Rishikesh – Ransi village. (200Km Drive, Approx)
Start your jouney early in the morning. By the evening reach at Ransi Village. Explore the area. Overnight stay at Hotel/Homestay/Lodges.

Day02: Ransi - Gaundar (Trek - 6 Km)
Ransi Village is located at the bank of Madhyamaheshwar Ganga. From Ransi the trail gradually descends into forests along the river. Small streams of water are visible in the trail.

Day03: Gaundar - Madmaheshwar (9 Km.) Start trekking on the trail into dense forest. The path rises steadily past Khatara (2km) to Nanu (2km). Nanu is a small village. From Nanu the forest becomes denser and the trail is steep. After Nanu, the Oak forests grow darker. The path exists from the forest as it moves around the mountain to appear at the Madhyaheshwar meadow.  

Day04: Madmaheshwar - Buda Madmaheshwar and back (3 Km.)
After breakfast start your trek for Buddha Madhyamaheshwar. This place is a beautiful meadow with three small ponds, small temple and an awesome view of Mt. Chaukhamba and Mt. Mandani. Reflection of Mt. Chaukhamba and Mt. Mandani is the main attraction of this place. All the four peaks of Mt. Chaukhamba and twin peaks of Mandani are visible from here.

Day05: Madmaheshwar – Ransi/Ukhimath
Follow the same route and retrace your steps back to Ransi.
Ukhimath is a central destination for visiting different places like Madhmaheshwar, Tungnath and Deoria Tal. Wedding of Lord Krishna's son Anirudh and Usha, daughter of demon Banasur was solemnised here thats why it is also called Ushamath. Idols from Madhyamaheswar and Kedarnath are bought here in Winters as the route closes due to snow and worshipped in Ukhimath. There is a temple of Lord Omkareshwar here which is worshipped by great fervor by devotees thronging all year round. From Ukhimath.
