Haridwar borders sealed to stop Kanwariyas flocking Har-ki-Pauri on Shravan Shivratri

The Kanwar Yatra season was to begin on July 6 but the Uttarakhand Government banned the yatra in view of the coronavirus epidemic. The yatra was to culminate on July 19 with Shravan Shivratri.

DEHRADUN, July 18: The Uttarakhand Government closed Haridwar district's borders with Uttar Pradesh today till July 20 to restrict Kanwariyas who are likely to hit the religious town ahead of Shravan Shivratri day on July 19, despite its ban by the State Government as a precaution against coronavirus.

The Kanwar Yatra begins on the first day of the holy Shravana month, according to Hindu calendar. This year the Yatra was to begin on July 6 but the Uttarakhand Government banned the yatra early in view of the coronavirus epidemic.

Every year Kanwariyas walk long distances from various States to Haridwar, where they take a holy dip and bring back waters from the Ganga to pour on Shiv lingas in temples back in their native place on Shravan Shivratri. This year, Shravan Shivratri will be celebrated on July 19.

Meanwhile, the Dehradun district administration is enforcing lockdown on Saturdays and Sundays from today to prevent coronavirus from spreading. Liquor shops will remain open as they have been exempted under 'essential services', as per the State Government's order.

The number of corona cases has reached 4,102 and the death toll is 34 in the State.
