Pandavas who were not able to find him at Varanasi went to the Himalayas where Bheema spotted this Bull and identified it to be Lord Shiva. He held on to it, not letting him go. In the struggle, the bull was torn into five parts which resulted in panch Kedar; Kedarnath – Back of Lord Shiva, Kapaleshwar – Hairs of Lord Shiva, Rudranath – Face of Lord Shiva and Kedarkantha – Throat of Lord Shiva.
