Uttarakhand 1997 - Kedarnath and Badrinath

The Kedarnath Temple that was nearly destroyed in the recent natural calamity has now been thrown up to the public again but a lot of reconstruction and rehabilitation has be done to bring this tiny temple town to its pristine glory.

We had been to Kedarnath and Badrinath in 1997 and here are some ancient pictures that are in our treasured memory.





notice the snow in the courtyard of the Kedarnath temple and this was June-July.


This was the Bharat Sevasram Sangha guest house or dharmashala that we stayed in.

After the stiff Kedarnath trek, we had some rest at this beautiful tent colony and Nandaprayag, right next to the rushing Alakananda River


Next stop was Badrinath the soaring Neelkantha Mountain

We hardly believe the flood disaster of UTTRAKHAND. It is one of the biggest disaster we have seen, I want to say that now we always ready to these kind of situation, make building after passing by the government towards the safe areas of the hills, all building are constructed in way that so we may least harm by these type of disaster. I on behalf of Web Designing Company in Delhi wish that we(India) will get out of this disaster as early as possible and make a plan to cop these situation in Future
The civil administration of UTTRAKHAND government from state to village level has totally collapsed. Heads must roll to set an example for all.
