Concerned at the rising number of deaths of pilgrims to the Amarnath shrine in Jammu and Kashmir, Shri Amarnath Shrine Board, which organises the yatra, has decided to cut back the annual pilgrimage to 45 days from the current two months.
This year, the yatra will begin on June 29 when snow starts melting along the treacherous route to the cave shrine up up in the Himalayas in south Kashmir.
Emphasising the need for a "pragmatic schedule", the board, at a meeting chaired by Governor N N Vohra, who is also the chairman of the board, noted that last year also, the yatra started only by June end due to bad weather.
The board also noted that during the last 15 years, the yatra has varied from 15 to 60 days and about 85 per cent of pilgrims visit the shrine during the first 30 days. Writen by : PriyaDharshini , Date :Tuesday - 08 March 2011 Report / Delete
