Amarnath Yatra: New batch of over 5000 pilgrims leave from Jammu

Jammu: Another batch of 5,273 pilgrims left Jammu on Wednesday to perform the ongoing Amarnath Yatra.

Since the Yatra started this year on July 1, over 1.2 lakh pilgrims had Darshan inside the holy Cave shrine situated 3,888 metres above the sea-level in Kashmir Himalayas.

The Cave shrine houses an ice stalagmite structure that symbolises mythical powers of Lord Shiva according to the devotees.

The structure waxes and wanes with the phases of the moon.

Police said here today: "Another batch of 5,273 Yatris left Bhagwati Nagar Yatri Niwas today morning in two escorted convoys for the Valley.

"Of these, 1,777 are going to Baltal base camp while 3,496 are going to Pahalgam base camp".
