The Uttarakhand Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat extended a warm welcome to devotees visiting the famous shrine in Garhwal Himalayas.

This would include a daily laser show on Lord Shiva aimed at making the visitors’ experience even more cherishable.

Even the availability of doctors has been ensured at every kilometer along the route.
On the directions of the Chief Minister, the administration has even gone on to ensure that enough boarding arrangements are made.
This comes after well-planned restoration work carried out at Kedarnath and there has been attempt to make its attractive and grand structure to be visible to all.
The Kedarnath was opened to devotees ceremoniously amid the chanting of Vedic hymns. Gangotri and Yamunotri shrines have already been reopened while the gates of Badrinath will be reopened on Apr 30.
The gates of these temples are closed every winter due to snow-bound conditions.>
