Amarnath Yatra has been cancelled for the second year in a row in view of the coronavirus pandemic. The decision to cancel the annual pilgrimage to the cave shrine in south Kashmir Himalayas was taken at a meeting of the Shri Amarnath Shrine Board chaired by Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha. “Shri Amarnathji Yatra cancelled in wake of Covid-19 Pandemic. Decision after threadbare discussion with Shri Amarnathji Shrine Board members. Yatra to be symbolic only. However, all the traditional religious rituals shall be performed at the Holy Cave Shrine as per past practice,” J&K LG Manoj Sinha tweeted.
