Reportedly, large number of pilgrims have started coming again at the Uttarakhand’s Gangotri and Yamunotri temples after a near two-month lull due to Monsoon.
Usually, number of pilgrims undertaking Char Dhaam Yaatra reduces in the Monsoon Season as roads get blocked after rains and land-slides. On an average, Gangotri and Yamunotri temples are now receiving 9,000 to 10,000 pilgrims daily these days, sources said.
Notably, after a brisk start of the Yaatra in May 2022 when a record number of pilgrims visited the temples daily, their number drastically reduced during July and August as frequent land-slides triggered by rains kept the roads blocked for several weeks.
