The Shri Kedarnath Utthan Charitable Trust (SKUCT) has allocated Rs 120 crore for the construction work in the temple premises.

According to the state’s Tourism Secretary Dilip Jawalkar, the second phase of the construction work — which would include a 50-feet wide walkway, security and other works — incurring a cost of Rs 120 crore, will be completed in Kedarnath Dham. The temple authority has given the amount to the organisations, which will carry out the construction work.

The SKUCT receives funds for reconstruction work from various PSUs and companies under their corporate social responsibility activities.

The SKUCT has been constituted by the Uttarakhand government in 2017 with an aim to facilitate construction, re-construction, development, re-development and renovation of all infrastructure at Kedarnath Dham.

The government constituted the trust with an aim to ensure holistic and time bound rehabilitation of the Kedarnath shrine – that was badly affected by flash floods in the year 2013.

Kedarnath Dham is one of the most revered centres of northern India. Located at an altitude of 3,584 meters, amidst the snow-clad Himalayan peaks and on the banks of river Mandakini, this shrine is dedicated to Lord Shiva and is regarded as one of the 12 Jyotirlingas.

It was established by the state government with an aim to ensure holistic and time bound rehabilitation of the Kedarnath shrine which was badly affected by flash floods in the year 2013. The trust receives funds from various PSUs and other companies for reconstruction work under their corporate social responsibility programme.

At 11,657 feet above sea level, Kedarnath is one of the most scenic and ethereal sites of Hindus. Steeped in legend and spirituality, records about this shrine date back to 6th CE, when worship has been offered to Kedarnath almost continuously through.

The shrine may be lodged in the Himalayan valleys, but its head priest is traditionally from the Veerashaiva community down south in Karnataka. The shrine is even mentioned in Tamil bhakti works. Adi Shankaracharya, born in today’s Kerala, one of India’s most influential philosophers, is said to have attained here.
