The recent Indian National tragedy
Blog Posted:9/24/2013 4:26:00 AM

 



The Kedarnath temple, one of the four pilgrimage centre for
Hindus world over, is in the Himalayas at the height of 13,500 feet. There was
a cloud bursts and then heavy rainfall which was about 375 percent more than
the benchmark rainfall during a normal monsoon.
It is feared that 20,000 people have died,  dead bodies recovered 684. This happened
around 14th to 17th June, 2013. There is news now that
the temple will reopen on 1st of October i.e. after nearly 95 days.
Surprisingly, there is no much danger to the idols of the Deity Shiv or Nandi , the
bull.


If any wants to see the Video clips of the tragedy, below
are the two links:
