Friday’s number of pilgrims is the lowest ever since the 40-day long yatra to the Himalayan cave shrine began on June 29.

“Already over 2.50 lakh pilgrims have performed this year’s yatra which will conclude on August 7,” officials of Shri Amarnathji Shrine Board (SASB) said.

The SASB headed by Jammu and Kashmir Governor N.N. Vohra manages the affairs of the yatra.

The pilgrims left the Bhagwati Nagar Yatri Niwas at 2.45 a.m. in an escorted convoy of 16 vehicles, officials said.
