Kedareshwar Temple is believed to have been built between the last decade of the 11th century and the early part of the 12th century. One of the eight Astasambhu Temples, the ancient temple stands near the yard of the Mukteswara Temple. On the right hand wall of the Jagamohana lies an inscription at the entrance that records the donation of a perpetual lamp to Lord Kedareshwar.
The donation was made by Raja Pramadi, the younger brother of the Ganga King Anantavarman Chodaganga, in the 11th century. A prominent place of Shiva worship during the early part of the 12th century, the temple lies at a distance of 4 km from the city. Lord Shiva, known locally by the name ‘Kedareshwar’ is the presiding deity of the temple. Lovers come at the temple to pray for their happy wedlock without any obstacles, owing to the belief that the temple is built at the site where the lovers, Kedar (male) and Gouri (female), were killed.
