Kedarnath, Yamnotri shrines closed for winter

The sacred portals of the Himalayan shrines of Kedarnath and Yamnotri in Uttarakhand were closed on Thursday amid chanting of vedic hymns in view of the onset of winter. Braving icy winds in upper Himalayas, devotees thronged the shrine to witness its ceremonial closure as the temple precincts reverberated with chants of ‘Bam Bhole’ and ’Jai Bhole’. Lord Shiva’s jyotirlinga was later to the nearby Ukhimath area.PTI
