After the Mahabharata war, the Pandavas want to know the legislation of making the atonement from Vedvyas Ji to get rid of sin for killing their own relatives, who died in the war. The Vyas Ji said that the welfare of Kulghati (own relatives killers) is not possible, but if you want liberation from this sin, then go to Kedar and pray and worship Lord Shiva. After accepting the instructions from Vyas Ji Pandavas started their journey to visit Kedarnath.

Pandav wished Shiva’s blessings and first, they reached Kashi, but Lord Shiva was not interested to give his blessing to Pandavas.
