the winter seat of Kedarnath, as well as the winter home of the priest who presides over his

worship. After the Kedarnath temple closes for the winter, a movable image of Kedarnath is

brought in procession to Ukhimath, where it resides until the Kedarnath temple reopens in late

April or early May.

This picture shows the outer gateway to the temple complex, which is not only brightly

painted and decorated, but two full stories tall (the wall also serves as the back wall of

buildings inside). The stones piled at lower left were for some sort of construction project,

which was in full swing when I visited (since summer is the "slow" season ritually speaking, it

made sense for the place to be torn up them. And the nearby buildings are clearly residential,

since a young girl is visible at upper right.
