Miracle of Kedarnath Temple, Himalayas

The Kedarnath Temple is a temple at about 12,000 feet in the Himalayas in India. In 2013, there were massive floods and large scale destruction surrounding the temple. Miraculously, a large boulder positioned itself behind the temple and diverted the flow of turbulent water, stones and debris on either side of the temple, saving it from destruction. Every structure was destroyed for miles around the temple. The boulder stands testimony to this event,as it has not been moved. The temple has a triangular Shivling in the inner part of the temple. There is a statue of Nandi carved from stone outside the temple. Any wish by a pilgrim who visits the temple is said to be granted by Lord Shiva. The temple can be reached by a trek of about 39 kms from Gaurikund, or a 7 minute helicopter ride.

it started to snow while we were there… A frenzied collective prayer from all present resulted in instant sunshine.. If you are a believer, it was a miracle…
