Srinagar- Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor, Manoj Sinha on Tuesday urged pilgrims to visit the holy shrine of Amarnath before August 5, in wake of inclement weather advisory issued by the Meteorological department.

“Given the erratic weather advisory, I would like to urge all the intending pilgrims of Lord Shiva to plan their visit to the holy cave shrine of Amarnath before August 5. Weather may turn more inclement after August 5 as suggested by the MeT department,” Sinha said, while talking to reporters after taking part in Chhari Mubarak pujan, at Mahadev Gir Dashnami Akhada here.

According to an official spokesperson, the Chhari-Pujan was performed on the auspicious occasion of Shravan Shukal Panchami, and is one of the important rituals prior to the culmination of the annual pilgrimage of Amarnathji Shrine.

While performing the Chhari Mubarak Pujan, he said, the LG prayed for sustained peace, progress and prosperity in J&K and well-being of people.
