43-Day Amarnath Pilgrimage Begins June 30

INDIA, March 27, 2022 (Verve Times): The Amarnath Yatra will start on June 30, 2022 with all Covid-19 protocols and culminate on the day of the Raksha Bandhan. The Amarnath Yatra will last for 43 days this year, the Office of the Lieutenant Gernor of Jammu and Kashmir informed today. On June 21 last year, the Jammu and Kashmir Government had decided to cancel this year`s Amarnath Yatra due to the Covid-19 situation in the country but all the traditional religious rituals were performed at the Holy Cave Shrine as per past practice.

Out of all Hindu deities, Lord Shiva is worshiped not only by Indians but also by people of other countries. To get closer to their revered God, who appears on this earth in the unique form of an ice Lingam, hundreds of thousands of devotees trek through the daunting mountains to Shri Amarnathji Shrine in South Kashmir every year in the summer months to pay their obeisance.
