It is a Hindu temple located in the Ransi village of the Garhwal Himalayas, at an altitude of 3625 meters above sea level in Uttarakhand, India. Madhmaheshwar trek is situated in the Kedarnath Wildlife Sanctuary in the northern Himalayas. The sanctuary is famous for the Himalayan Musk Deer and is protecting this endangered species. It is also the largest biodiversity in India with the most varieties of flora and fauna found here. The Temple is constructed in unique North Indian architecture "Pandit Saili". The older, so-called ‘Vriddh-Madhyamaheshwar’, the temple is a tiny blackened shrine on the ridge, which looks straight up at the commanding Chaukhamba peaks. In the current temple, a navel-shaped Shiva lingam, made of black stone, is enshrined in the sanctum.
This trek is also known as the Madhmaheshwar trek or Budha Madhmaheshwar trek. Amidst the high snow-capped mountains and beautiful meadows lies a place devoted to the almighty where not only the locals but travelers come to every year and experience life the other way around at an elevation of 3500m. People still reside in the villages close to the temple and have devoted their lives in the name of the Lord which makes the entire experience more holistic and genuine. We get to witness local architecture and also taste local cuisines and snacks on the way. It is an opportunity to live in the culture and values of the place. Apart from its religious and cultural activities, the Madmaheshwar trek is a moderate hike with steep pastures, flora, and fauna.

The middle (Madhya) or belly part or navel (nabhi) of the shiv, considered a divine form of Shiva, is worshiped at this temple.
