Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha flagged off the first batch from Jammu amidst Vedic chanting at base camp Bhagwati Nagar in the early hours of Wednesday. He prayed for peace, prosperity and a safe spiritual journey in Jammu and Kashmir. During this the whole atmosphere was Shivamaya. The base camp was completely packed with Shiva devotees. Devotees were welcomed with the tunes of the CRPF band. Jangam Baba made the whole atmosphere devotional by narrating the story of Lord Shiva. At the beginning of the 43-day journey, the devotees of Bhole were seen dancing.

He said that our security forces are fully prepared to deal with terrorist activities, so we will see Baba without fear. Even the heat and heavy humidity could not dampen the enthusiasm of the devotees during the departure of the batch. Some were making Damru and some Trishul with them to make them feel the power of Baba. Thousands of security forces have been deployed for the yatra. The first batch from Baltal and Pahalgam base camps will proceed towards the holy cave in the early hours of Thursday. The distance of the holy cave from South Kashmir Pahalgam via Nunwan route is 32 km and from Baltal route in central Kashmir Ganderbal this distance is 14 km. Devotees going from Baltal will be able to return after first darshan in the holy cave. Devotees will stay at Nunwan Base Camp in Pahalgam.

  • The holy cave of Shri Amarnath ji is situated at an altitude of 13500 feet in the South Kashmir Himalayas. In the year 2019, the Amarnath Yatra had to be postponed due to the reorganization of Jammu and Kashmir, after which the Yatra could not take place for two years due to the Kovid epidemic. In the year 2019, 3.42 lakh devotees had visited Baba Barfani. For the security of the yatra, five thousand security personnel have been deployed in Jammu city itself.
