Amarnath Yatra Begins…

Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha flagged off the first batch of 4,890 pilgrims for the Amarnath Yatra from the Jammu base camp.

The Yatra resumed after a gap of 3 years.

In 2019, the Yatra was cancelled midway ahead of the Centre abrogating Article 370 of the Constitution.

In 2020 and 2021, it did not take place because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

It is believed that the footfall of pilgrims this time for the 43-day Yatra could be a record high.

Glimpses of the start of the Yatra.
