The renovation of the Kedarnath cave got completed only last year under the watch of Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath. Some construction work had been done on the front portion of the cave earlier, however, the chamber received an improvised attractive look only last year.

A traditional architecture look was used while modifying the structure. Cut stone was used on the front and the roof was made with slate stone, with an attached toilet adding luxury features to the cave.

The Wood Stone Construction Company has constructed this cave in Kedarnath with the financial support of Jindal Group. The Uttarakhand government plans to develop many more such chambers, to be utilised by spiritual seekers.
