The doors of the shrine will be opened at 4:30 AM on May 11 amid chanting of vedic hymns and elaborate rituals, Badrinath-Kedarnath Temple committee CEO BD Singh said.
The auspicious day and hour to reopen the gates of the shrine was announced today by the Rajpurohit on the occasion of Basant Panchmi at the erstwhile palace of the Tehri royals located at Narendranagar, he said.
The announcement was made in the presence of Badri-Kedar Temple Committee officials, erstwhile Tehri royals and others, Singh cited. The portals of the famous shrine were closed on November 17 last year for the winter season when the area remains snowbound.
