Devotees in the Dhyan Cave located in Kedarnath have great enthusiasm for the pilgrimage. Garhwal Mandal Vikas Nigam (GMVN) has received full booking of the kedarnath’s cave till October 31. Here, 46 devotees have meditated after the meditation cave opened for the general devotees.
This meditation cave has been a center of discussion in the country and abroad since Prime Minister Narendra Modi performed spiritual practice here for nearly 17 hours on May 18. Dhyan Cave was built in the hill style last year at a cost of about eight lakhs by the Nehru Institute of Mountaineering on the hill to the right of the Mandakini River, about one and a half km from the Kedarnath Temple.
According to GMVN, in the last 65 days, 46 devotees who have visited Baba Kedar from the states of Bangalore, Hyderabad, Maharashtra, Gujarat, etc. have done meditation and yoga in the meditation cave.
Some of these devotees stayed in the cave for two to three days. With this, the corporation has already earned more than 95 thousand. The corporation has fixed a fee of Rs 1500 for night stay here and Rs 990 for the day, as well as a regular duty of an employee for the responsibility of food and other facilities for the devotees doing meditation and yoga here.
Regular bookings are available for Dhyan Cave. According to the prescribed standards, devotees are being accommodated in the meditation cave. Full bookings have been received for one and a half months.
