PTI Dehradun | Updated on October 16, 2021

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit Kedarnath on November 5 to offer prayers and inaugurate Kedarpuri reconstruction projects worth ₹250 crore.

This will be his second visit to the state within a month. He had visited the All Indian Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in Rishikesh on October 7 to inaugurate an oxygen plant there.

Confirming Modi's visit to Kedarnath next month, Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami said that apart from offering prayers at the temple, the prime minister is likely to inaugurate Kedarpuri reconstruction projects worth ₹250 crore, including the rebuilt Samadhi of Adi Guru Shankaracharya.

The Prime Minister is also likely to lay foundation stones of second phase of Kedarpuri reconstruction projects worth ₹150 crore, Dhami said.

Modi has visited Kedarnath several times since becoming the prime minister in 2014. He could not come to Kedarnath last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. With the pandemic situation relatively under control now there was speculation about his visit to the temple. The prime minister has been closely monitoring Kedarpuri reconstruction projects.

The portals of Kedarnath are scheduled to be closed for winter on November 6 on the occasion of Bhaiyya Dooj.
