What Took so Long to Open the Gates? 

Besides the obvious that we are currently under the threat of a pandemic, there is another reason why the dates of opening the gates were postponed. Well the nationwide lockdown has been imposed to keep us safe from the virus and in such a situation, Rawals (priests) of both Kedarnath and Badrinath were stuck in Maharashtra and Kerala respectively. But, Rawal Bhimashankar Linga of Kedarnath reached Ukhimath on Sunday morning. Apart from this, Rawal of Badrinath is also going to return to Uttarakhand on Monday.

However, as per the protocols set by the government for beating this pandemic, he will have to enter into a quarantine period for fourteen days and because of this, the doors will not be opened on the due date. Once these fourteen days of quarantine are over, we will witness the doors getting opened. 

Readers should know there were many discussions about opening the doors of the temples and completing the Puja rituals associated with it getting commemorated online, through video conferencing. But, these discussions didn’t make it to the final plan. People are also of the belief that the corona outbreak will somehow get minimized after May 15, when the doors of the Temples will be opened.

Note: Earlier, the scheduled date of opening the Kedarnath Temple was 29 April and the doors of Badrinath Temple were supposed to be opened for the devotees on 30 April.
