PM Modi visits Kedarnath
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has visited the famous Himalayan temple of Kedarnath, which is dedicated to Lord Shiva, today.
This is the second time the Indian PM has visited the popular pilgrimage site of Saivite in the last two years.
His visit has come a day after the campaign session of the 2019 general election formally marked its end.
He has received special permission from the Election Commission of India to visit the temple in the Himalaya.
Kedarnath is one of the twelve Jyotirlinga temples in the country. A Jyotirlinga pilgrimage, which normally starts at Rameswaram, ends at Kedarnath. Apart from Rameswaram and Kedarnath, Varanasi, the constituency from which the PM is contesting for the parliament, is where another important Jyothirlinga is situated.
Later this day or tomorrow, the PM will also visit Badrinath, which is the popular pilgrimage site of Vaishnavites.
While giving permission to the PM, the EC has also remained the continuing existence of the Model Code of Conduct, released as a part of the election.
