Over 7,700 pilgrims offer prayers at holy cave shrine of Shri Amarnath Ji

In Jammu and Kashmir, over 7,700 pilgrims drawn from various parts of the country have paid their obeisance at the holy cave shrine of Shri Amarnath Ji yesterday. The pilgrimage to the shrine is situated at an altitude of 3,880 meters above sea level in the snow-bound Himalayas in South Kashmir.

As per the official sources, a total of 7,736 pilgrims visited the holy cave yesterday from the twin tracks of Baltal and Chandanwari and performed darshan of naturally formed Ice Lingam by last evening. With this, the total number of pilgrims, who have performed the Darshan in the holy cave since the annual Yatra started on the 30th of June, has touched over two lakhs and fifty-three thousand mark so far.

Meanwhile, the Yatra from both the routes was through till the last reports came in. In all, 3,228 Yatris left for their onward journey from Pahalgam Nunwan Base Camp towards Chandanwari till 11 this morning. Yatra has also started from all the other Transit Camps including Sheshnaag, Mahagunus Top and Panjtharni towards the holy cave. More than 2,900 Yatris also left Base Camp in Baltal towards the holy cave this morning.

Earlier this morning, 2,504 Yatris for the Baltal route left Bhagwati Nagar Base Camp in Jammu in a cavalcade of 88 vehicles amid tight security cover.

However, the convoy was stopped at Chanderkote in Ramban because of heavy rains and the shooting of stones on the Jammu-Srinagar National Highway and the Yatris were lodged in the Yatri Niwas at Chanderkote till the clearance of the traffic on the highway. The Pahalgam bound 4,549 Yatris who also had left Jammu were reverted back to Jammu from Udhampur in view of the closure of the Highway.

The 43-day long Shri Amarnathji Yatra is scheduled to culminate on Shravan Purnima coinciding with the day of the Raksha Bandhan festival which is falling on the 11th of August this year.
