Pilgrims Will Not Be Able To Worship In Yamunotri Dham this year

Delay in the reconstruction work of the disaster affected Yamunotri Dham, there is anger in the Tirtha Purohit society. Due to the erosion caused by the river Yamuna, more than 50 people have not been able to stand in the temple premises.

In such a situation, the pilgrims have shown their inability to perform darshan and worship in the temple after seeing the danger of not having completed the bridge and other security work connecting the temple to the Dham before the Char Dham Yatra.

In July last year, a huge catastrophe hit Yamunotri Dham in the Yamuna river. Due to the disaster due to the main bridges connecting the temple many dams, such as the Bath Ghat, the hot tub, the office of the society, were destroyed, for which the priestly society has long been demanding to rebuild.

Jagmohan Singh Uniyal, Vice President of Yamunotri Temple Committee, Secretary, Krishteeshwar Uniyal, spokesman, Bageshwar Uniyal said that Lonivi started constructing a bridge in Dham just a few days ago. So far the irrigation department has not started construction works like ghats and security wall etc.

The late work is not expected to be completed before the opening of the cupboard. In view of the danger situation here, the committee has decided to open the gate of the temple only for the morning prayer and worship of the morning and evening after the opening of the kapat. The remaining doors of the temple will remain closed.

A budget of 1.54 crore has been approved for the protection work in Yamunotri Dham. The tender process of these works has been completed. Due to heavy snow accumulation in Dham, the work has not started yet. Efforts will be made to complete the work as soon as the ice melts, before opening the cupat.
