Winter Leg of Char Dham Yatra begins

On Tuesday, the summer leg of the Char Dham Yatra ended with the closure of the portals of the Badrinath shrine.  The portals were closed with the chants of prayers, shlokas and rituals performed by the priests, as told by the Badrinath-Kedarnath Mandir Samiti official, B.D. Singh.  The portals of other three shrines namely Gangotri, Yamunotri and Kedarnath have also been closed.

More than 8,000 devotees visited the shrine on the last day for paying their regards. During the closing ceremony the idol of Lord Vishnu was taken in a palanquin to Joshimath, where the deity will be worshipped during winters.  The devotees can enrapture in the spiritual bliss as the Char Dham Yatra will be functional for the coming six months in order to promote pilgrimage and other tourism activities.

According to PTI, “Deities of the four Himalayan shrines of Badrinath, Kedarnath, Yamunotri and Gangotri have been moved to Joshimath, Ukhimath, Kharsali and Mukhba, respectively where pilgrims and tourists can pay obeisance during winter.”
