This year’s Amarnath yatra will start on June 30 and last 43 days, the office of the Lieutenant Governor of Jammu and Kashmir tweeted today. The decision to set the date was taken at a meeting of the Shri Amarnathji Temple Board chaired by Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha.
Yatra Amarnath was canceled in mid -2019 just before the special statue of Jammu and Kashmir was canceled and it was divided into two Union Territories.
Subsequently, only symbolic yatras have been observed in the last two years due to the COVID-19 epidemic.
“Today, chaired the board meeting of Shri Amarnathji Shrine Board. The 43 -day holy pilgrimage will begin on June 30 with all Covid protocols implemented and culminate, according to tradition, on Raksha Bandhan day. We held in -depth discussions on various issues also on yatra will come on, ”tweeted Mr Sinha’s office.

The Shri Amarnathji Temple Board was formed in 2000 with the Governor of Jammu and Kashmir as its ex-officion chairman.
Millions of devotees have trekked the fearsome mountains to the Shri Amarnathji Temple in southern Kashmir every year during the summer months to pay homage to Lord Shiva.
