As Nainital High Court lifted the ban from Uttarakhand’s Chardham Yatra, Gurudwara Sri Hemkunt Sahib has also resumed the annual ‘Yatra’ for the devotees. The Gurudwara Sri Hem Kunt Sahib Management Trust has issued new guidelines for the devotees in view of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Only 1,000 devotees will be allowed to have darshan at Gurudwara Hemkunt Sahib in a single day. The order further stated that a negative RT-PCR /Rapid Antigen Test/True Nat/CBNAT report not older than 72 hours is mandatory for devotees who are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
People coming from outside Uttarakhand will have to register themselves on smartcitydehradun.uk.gov.in and also strictly follow COVID-19 protocols issued by the Uttarakhand government.
The pilgrims would have to get themselves registered at the Rishikesh Gurudwara Trust office and if any individual is found without the proof, he/she would be stopped from undertaking the religious tour.
