Jammu and Kashmir, July 9, 2023 – After a brief suspension due to adverse weather conditions, the much-awaited Amarnath Yatra has resumed after three days from Jammu and Kashmir’s Panjtarni, Sheshnag camps as per the reports.
Pilgrims from all over the country rejoiced as they were finally able to embark on their spiritual journey to the holy cave shrine of Amarnath.
The annual Amarnath Yatra is a significant pilgrimage for devotees of Lord Shiva. Every year, thousands of pilgrims undertake this arduous trek to seek blessings from the ice stalagmite, believed to represent the deity. However, this year’s pilgrimage faced a temporary setback due to inclement weather conditions.
Heavy rainfall and landslides had forced authorities to suspend the Yatra temporarily as a precautionary measure to ensure the safety of the pilgrims. The downpour had caused a surge in water levels in the rivers and streams along the route, making it unsafe for the pilgrims to proceed.
However, stringent safety measures have been put in place by the government and security forces to ensure smooth and secure conduct of the pilgrimage. Special teams have been deployed along the trekking routes to monitor the situation and provide assistance to the pilgrims.
Medical camps and emergency services have also been set up to cater to any health-related issues that may arise during the Yatra. The resumption of the Amarnath Yatra has brought joy not only to the pilgrims but also to the local economy, which heavily relies on the annual influx of visitors.
Hostels, guesthouses, and other businesses in the region are now buzzing with activity as devotees and tourists fill the area. The Amarnath Shrine Board along with the local administration, has taken several initiatives to ensure the smooth functioning of the Yatra.
Continuous monitoring of the weather conditions, regular communication with the pilgrims, and swift response to any emergencies are some of the steps taken to enhance the overall experience of the devotees.
According to a source, under the supervision of camp directors, the entire facilities are extended to yatris including Langers, health facilities, and Sanitation assistance by service providers including poniwallaa, pithuwalas, dandiwalas, and many more assistance. The 62-day-long Shri Amarnath Yatra will culminate on August 31, 2023.
