The President of Badrinath Kedarnath Temple Committee in Uttarakhand inspects the ongoing reconstruction works and evaluates the travel arrangements for the devotees.
Ajendra Ajay, the President of Badrinath Kedarnath Temple Committee (BKTC), along with officials from various departments, visited Badrinath temple on Sunday-April 09. During the visit, he inspected the ongoing reconstruction works and reviewed the travel arrangements for devotees. He urged officials to expedite the work to ensure that the opening of the temple doors on April 27 goes smoothly for devotees.
Due to the reconstruction work, devotees will need to use a new pedestrian route, which Ajay stressed should be “organized in a timely manner” to avoid inconvenience. Ajendra Ajay also inspected demolished buildings and shops near the temple. He also directed officials to construct pre-fabricated rooms for those associated with the worship system of the temple.
He urged the officials to remove the debris from BKTC’s demolished VIP house near the temple and construct a railing on the temple path. He also asked that the debris be removed from the Brahma Kapal as soon as possible to ensure there is no difficulty for people arriving for Pind Daan. He also emphasized that the construction of the Shoe Stand must begin immediately.
The Kedarnath Dham will open on April 25, Badrinath on April 27, and Gangotri and Yamunotri on April 22. The Chardham Yatra in Uttarakhand, which includes visits to four holy sites, is one of India’s most popular Hindu pilgrimages.
