Dehradun: In view of the record footfall of pilgrims during the Char Dham Yatra last year, the government is going to introduce new arrangements to facilitate the yatra this year.
Preparations are in full swing for the 'Char Dham Yatra' with the announcement of the date for the opening of the doors of Gangotri, Yamunotri, Kedarnath and Badrinath Dhams.
The doors of Gangotri and Yamunotri will open on 22 April, Kedarnath Dham on 26 April and the doors of Shri Badrinath Dham will open the following day on 27 April.
"Arrangements are being made for better facilities and arrangements for the pilgrims coming for the Char Dham Yatra," Sachin Kurve, State Tourism Secretary said. He said that they are planning to introduce a new system to facilitate devotees.
Uttarakhand Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami said that the sacred Char Dham Yatra, one of the most popular Hindu pilgrimages that take place annually in the Garhwal Himalayas will draw in a record number of devotees this year.
However, the state government will review preparation for the yatra 15 days prior to its commencement. Since Joshimath lies at the entrance of the yatra and the last major halt before Badrinath, officials will review preparations to ensure that the land subsidence issue does not impact the yatra.
