<p>On Wednesday, a group of sadhus headed by Mahant Deependra Giri would go to Panchtarni while carrying the sacred mace.</p>
<p>When the ‘Chhari Mubarak’ arrived to the revered Sheshnag lake, which is located at an elevation of 11,780 feet, a number of rites were performed. On Wednesday, the sacred Mace will undergo another puja before traveling to Panchtarni, from whence it will go to the Amarnath temple.</p>
<p>The ‘Chhari Mubarak’ departed Srinagar on August 26 and will arrive at the Amarnath shrine on August 31, when the yatra’s 62-day journey would come to an end.</p>
<p>As per long-standing custom, the sacred “Chhari Mubarak” departed from Srinagar’s Dashnami Akhara on Saturday amid heavy security and proceeded to the Amarnath cave shrine.</p>
<p>Custodian of the Charri-Mubarak Mahant Deependra Giri and a number of Sadhus departed from Dashnami Akhara Temple in a bus towards the cave shrine to perform the yatra’s last rites.</p>
<p>The yatra was hampered by bad weather, and as a consequence, it was postponed last week as the number of pilgrims significantly dropped. The number of pilgrims also decreased as a consequence of landslides and strong rainfall.</p>
<p>More than 4.40 lakh pilgrims, a record number, paid respects to the cave sanctuary, nevertheless.</p>
<p>“From the Dashnami Akhara Temple, Chhari Mubarak, which portrayed Lord Shiva and another Goddess Parvati, was originally transported to Pahalgam.</p>
<p>In order to conduct a particular pooja, the “Charri Mubarak” was carried to the Shri Martanda Temple and the Shivji Mahraj Harishchandra Temple in Bijbehara.</p>
<p>Pujan was also conducted on the way to Pahalgam at the Sureshwar Temple in Srinagar, the Shiv Temples in Pampore, Bijbehara, Martand, and Mattan, as well as the Ganesh Temple at Ganeshbal, which is located across the Lidder River.</p>
<p>Then, on August 28, August 29, and August 30, Chhari-Mubarak spent another night at each of the following locations: Chandanwari, Sheshnag, and Panchtarni. On August 31, in honor of Shravan-Punima, ChhariMubarak will be transported to the Holy Shrine of Amarnath so that they may be there before dawn. Pujan will then start as the sun rises.</p>
<p>“The True Trust,” established by Mahant Deependra Giri, has made the required preparations for Sadhus and the poor from the general public for their food, tented lodging, and transportation during the yearly pilgrimage.</p>
