Nainital:

The Uttarakhand High Court on Tuesday removed the daily limit on the number of devotees going to the temples of Sir Tham, Kedarnath, Badrinath, Gangotri and Yamunotri.

Considering the spread of the corona virus, the High Court has fixed the maximum number of devotees who visit the temples daily at 1,000 for Badrinath, 800 for Kedarnath, 600 for Gangotri and 400 for Yamunotri.

After the court order, there will be no daily limit from Wednesday.

A division bench comprising Chief Justice RS Chauhan and Justice Alok Kumar Verma said every pilgrim should bring a negative corona virus test report and vaccination certificate.

Apart from this, police will be deployed in Samoli, Rudraprayag and Uttarakhand districts as required.

Earlier, the High Court had banned bathing in any reservoir or spring around the temples, except for setting a daily limit.

However, the state government filed an affidavit in the High Court seeking to amend its earlier order to increase the number of devotees visiting the Himalayan shrines.

The application also states that all the guidelines laid down by the court in the previous order are being followed.

The government told the court that all necessary arrangements had been made between the four.
