So far, more than 3.48 lakh pilgrims have visited Badrinath, Kedarnath, Gangotri and Yamunotri Dham in a journey of just 43 days. The Chardham Yatra, which started from July 1 last year, lasted for five months. It was visited by about 3.22 lakh pilgrims.



In May this year, the doors of the Chardham were opened. But for the prevention of Covid infection, due to lack of adequate arrangements in the Chardham, the High Court had banned the operation of the yatra. The state government had requested the court for a special hearing by giving an application to open the Chardham Yatra again.

On which the court removed the ban and ordered to start Chardham on the basis of limited numbers. The Chardham Yatra started on 18th September. But due to the limited number of darshans in the dham, the travelers have to return without seeing them. On the request of the government, the court ordered the removal of the limited number. Due to which the speed of those who visit Chardham Yatra has increased. 3.48 lakh passengers have visited in 43 days. Whereas in the last year 2020, about 3.22 lakh pilgrims had visited Chardham till the closure of the doors from the yatra that started from July 1.

Ravinath Raman, CEO, Devasthanam Management Board, says that there is a lot of enthusiasm among the pilgrims to visit the Chardham. Due to which the number of passengers visiting till now is more than last year.
