The temple closes at 3pm for darshan... so reach early. In the morning you may be even allowed to touch the linga of Kedarnath. It is huge. Evening Arthi should not be missed either. The temple is lit up and the linga is decorated with the golden cobra on top of it. No one inside the temple pushes you for money. Outside you may get pressured by several sadhus. Off season is possibly the best time to avoid crowds and lines.
