Amarnath yatra 2013

Amarnath yatra is about to finish for this year. The pilgrimage to the holy cave shrine for amarnath, suspended following communal strife in Kishtwar, resumed from the Jammu base camp today while it was temporarily stopped from Pahalgam and Baltal camps in Kashmir owing to torrential rains.
The ongoing yatra was suspended from the Jammu base camp on August 10, a day after communal clashes erupted in Kishtwar that left three dead and scores injured.
Curfew was also imposed on several districts in Jammu region after the outbreak of communal violence.

Hopefully, amarnath yatra will be peaceful for last couple of days.
