Mandakini, Saraswati Asthapath At Kedarnath To Boost Religious Tourism

Saraswati Asthapath At Kedarnath

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will embark on a visit to Uttarakhand’s Kedarnath on Friday for the launch of various developmental projects.

He will also review the progress of the development works of Mandakini ashtpath and Saraswati ashtpath in Kedarnath.
With the construction of the two asthpath, cultural tourism is expected to get a huge thrust in the region.

The point where there is a confluence of Mandakini or Saraswati is called Sangam snan ghat in the Kedarnath temple.

The devotees take a holy dip before going inside the temple to offer prayers. Two roads diverge from here which lead to the temple. The developmental projects that are underway in Kedarnath include Mandakini Ashtpath and Saraswati Ashtpath, which will be inspected by the Prime Minister tomorrow.

Two separate bridges have been constructed from Sangam snan ghat to Mandakini Ashtpath and Saraswati Ashtpath, from where the devotees will enter the temple.

“A queue management has been readied at the interjection of the two bridges from where the devotees will enter. They will reach the temple directly from this point,” the site engineers told ANI.

A water ATM has also been set up at Mandakini Ashtpath where 22 water taps have been installed. The devotees will get warm and cold water here. New shops have also been brought up where the materials relating to worship will be available.

Nearly eight buildings have been built with two floors each. There are four rooms on the ground floor and the top floor each. Shops will be set up on the ground floor while the priests will be made to stay on the top floor. Toilets and other facilities have been taken care of for the devotees.

Rooms for the priests and a corridor for worship have been made in the Saraswati Ashtpath. A separate building has been built here, where the work relating to the administration will be done.

Developmental works are underway in Kedarnath at a fast pace. With the construction of Mandakini Ashtpath and Saraswati Ashtpath, cultural tourism is expected to get a huge boost in the region.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit Uttarakhand tomorrow.

According to the Prime Minister’s Office, in Kedarnath, at around 8:30 am, he will perform darshan and pooja at Shri Kedarnath Temple.
