The Lt Governor, who is also the Chairman of the Shri Amarnathji Shrine Board, accompanied by the senior officers from Army, Civil administration, Police and the Shrine Board, performed puja at the shrine.
“May the divine blessings of Lord Shiva ensure good health and happiness in everyone’s life and bless us with strength to overcome the ongoing health crisis”, prayed the Lt Governor.

Let us resolve to effectively deal with the pandemic by following Covid guidelines and work towards furthering human welfare, added the Lt Governor.
Pertinently, both morning telecast of Aarti at 6 AM and evening Aarti at 5 PM, each for 30 minutes, is to be live-streamed on Shri Amarnath ji Shrine board official website and the app specifically dedicated for the devotees.
