Amarnath Yatra Commences with Enthusiastic Pilgrims and Tight Security

The annual Amarnath Yatra commenced on Saturday as the first group of devotees departed from the twin base camps in Baltal and Nunwan, embarking on their spiritual journey to the 3,880-meter-high cave shrine in the south Kashmir Himalayas. The pilgrimage began early in the morning, utilizing the two main routes: the traditional 48-kilometer Nunwan-Pahalgam path and the shorter 14-kilometer Baltal route. Officials, including deputy commissioners and senior police and civil administration members, flagged off the groups at both starting points. On Friday, Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha had already flagged off an initial batch of 4,603 pilgrims from the Yatri Niwas base camp in Bhagwati Nagar, Jammu. Upon their arrival in the Kashmir Valley, the pilgrims were warmly welcomed by local residents and administration officials. As they proceed, they will pay homage at the sacred cave shrine, known for its naturally formed ice-lingam. To ensure the safety of the participants, extensive security measures have been implemented, including the deployment of thousands of personnel from the police, Central Reserve Police Force, Indo-Tibetan Border Police, and other paramilitary units, along with aerial surveillance. The 52-day pilgrimage, a significant spiritual event, will culminate on August 19.
