Kedarnath Temple : Prayers Are On After Three Months.

On Wednesday the flood-hit Kedarnath temple have opened the doors for the pilgrims after deathly silence and shut for nearly three months. As soon as the sanctification and atonement ceremonies at the sanctum that has been already spruced up by the authorities are done, routine prayers resumed soon at the Himalayan shrine in Uttarakhand.

Power, water and mobile connectivity have also been restored. The Chief Minister Vijay Bahuguna and also the top brass of the state government are expected to attend the ceremony. To complete the preparations at shrine, a government body managing the shrine and the staff of the Badrinath Kedarnath Temple Committee (BKTC) - have already reached the shrine.

In every Ten days the new staff will replace the staff members those who are on duty. On a rotation basis the services of the staff will be provided. To restart the “Puja” all the preparations have been done. The district administration has allowed restricted entry to the shrine for pilgrims to reduce the pressure from the local people.

The Rudraprayag administration, earlier just after flood tragedy, had placed a ban on pilgrim’s entry into the temple. Now, the batches of pilgrims consisting around 20-25 pilgrims will be allowed to visit the shrine at a time.

According to the sources from Hindi News, the state government got huge embarrassment after the recent recovery of dead bodies in the valley. “All the dead bodies have been removed from the valley by police in August” State police claimed it.
