Kedarnath puja to restart on September 11

Dehradun, Aug. 3 -- Puja is likely to be resumed at the Kedarnath shrine on September 11, almost two months after the massive flash floods hit Uttarakhand, leaving the temple town of Kedarnath ravaged and the fabled 10th century shrine partly damaged.

"September 11 has been decided as the date for resumption of puja at the request of the sant samaj. But a final decision will be taken after we review the situation in the rain-ravaged town by August-end," chief minister Vijay Bahuguna said in Dehradun on Friday.
