The Agra circle of Archeological Survey of India (ASI) conducted a cleanup drive for the revered Kedarnath shrine. The officials from the ASI cleaned the walls of the holy shrine off vegetations and algae formations and coated it with silicon and other preservatives.

Due to the fact that the holy shrine remain submerged in snow during winters and sees heaving rains during the monsoons, it was important to carry out maintenance program for the Kedarnath shrine which attracts millions of pilgrims every year.

Kedarnath shrine suffered damages during 2013 disaster that devastated the region and ASI was swift in their measures regarding its restoration. To avert any future disasters, teams from ASI and IIT Madras implemented various regulations such as prohibition of any construction within 300 meters of the shrine.
