The story goes like this, once Pandavas were burdened with the guilt of fratricide and they wanted themselves to be free from that sin so they started pleading Lord Shiva but Shiva didn’t want to forgive them so easily and this is why he transformed himself into a bull and submerged himself into the ground but Bhima caught him and tried to get hold of him but unfortunately he couldn’t succeed in his motive. When he was submerging himself into the ground then his body parts got scattered and reached to different places and the hump of the bull was found at Kedarnath so when you visit the shrine you will get to see the deity in the shape of a bull hump.
