Corona stopped the enthusiasm of the devotees

The corona epidemic has stopped the enthusiasm of devotees coming to see Baba Kedar for two years. In view of the pandemic, this year also the Chardham Yatra has not started yet. Whereas these days there was a huge crowd of pilgrims in Kedarnath Dham.

Around 10 lakh pilgrims reached Kedarnath in 2019

After the disaster, the number of pilgrims visiting Kedarnath Dham was increasing every year due to the decoration of Kedar Dham. In the year 2019, about 10 lakh pilgrims reached Kedarnath. Whereas only 1.35 lakh devotees have come in the year 2020 due to the corona epidemic.
