Chardham to remain closed to pilgrims till June 30

The Chardham temples of the Himalayan State of Uttarakhand, Gangotri, Yamunotri, Kedarnath and Badrinath, will re-open to public only after June 30 as a precaution against the raging coronavirus epidemic, the temple Board has decided.

DEHRADUN, June 9: The Chardham temples in Uttarakhand did not open to the pilgrims on Monday when the countrywide lockdown to prevent corona spread was lifted and temples were among the establishments allowed to re-open.

The Chardham Devasthanam Board issued an order on Tuesday, putting off the Chardham yatra until June 30. However, it allowed the local people to visit the four Himalayan temples in limited numbers and with permits from the district administration.

The order issued by Chardham Devasthanam Board CEO Ravinath Raman said that at Badrinath 1,200 local devotees will be allowed a day, at Kedarnath 800, at Gangotri 600 and at Yamunotri 400.

The Badrinath temple’s chief priest Rawal Ishwari Prasad Nambudiri and others had last week urged the Uttarakhand Government to keep the yatra to the Himalayan shrine suspended till June 30 considering the safety of the pilgrims in view of the raging epidemic.

The portals of Gangotri and Yamunotri were opened on the occasion of Akshay Tritiya on April 24, Kedarnath was opened on April 29 and Badrinath on May 15 in the presence of only priests and devasthanam board officials but no other devotees as the countrywide coronavirus lockdown was in force.
