DEHRADUN, Feb. 19, 2023 (TBINN)
Uttarakhand Government has announced the time and date for the opening of Kedarnath portals, after six-month Winter Break on Saturday. The doors of Kedarnath Dham will open at 6:20 A.M. on April 25, 2023.
The annual pilgrimage will start on the occasion of Akshaya Tritiya on April 22, 2023 with the opening of Gangotri and Yamunotri Dham gates. Portals of Badrinath will open on April 27, 2023.
This year’s Yaatra will be held against the backdrop of the land subsidence in Joshimath, about 45 K.M. away from Badrinath and it may prove a challenge for the authorities.
Known as the ‘gateway to Badrinath’, Joshimath is the last major halt for pilgrims travelling on the lone route to holy city.
