Good News for Devotees: Kedarnath Dham to reopen Pilgrims on May 10

The revered Kedarnath Dham, one of the twelve Jyotirlingas, will open its doors for pilgrims on May 10 at 7 am, announced the Badrinath-Kedarnath Temple Committee. This auspicious decision was revealed on the occasion of Maha Shivaratri.

The pilgrimage journey will commence with the departure of the Panchmukhi Doli on May 6, traversing various stops before reaching Kedarnath Dham on the evening of May 9.

This significant announcement was made during a religious ceremony presided over by Ajendra Ajay, President of the Badrinath-Kedarnath Temple Committee, at the Pachkadar Gaddi Sthal Shri Omkareshwar Temple in Uttarakhand's Ukhimath.

During the winter months, heavy snowfall leads to the closure of all routes for approximately six months. At this time, the idol is relocated to Ukhimath and reinstalled in April or May.

Traditionally, the doors of Kedarnath are closed two days after Diwali, marking the onset of winter, and are reopened in April or May. Last year, the temple doors closed on November 15, witnessed by two thousand five hundred pilgrims amid the devotional sounds of the Indian Army Band.

Kedarnath Temple, dedicated to Lord Shiva, attracts devotees from across the country during the six months it remains open. Thousands of pilgrims visit annually to offer prayers.

The Char Dham Yatra in Uttarakhand, which includes Badrinath, Kedarnath, Gangotri, and Yamunotri, stands as one of India's most renowned Hindu pilgrimages, nestled amidst the Himalayas.
