Jammu, Jul 31 (UNI) The Amarnath 'yatra' has witnessed an immense dip following tension over the land row with 305 pilgrims leaving for the cave shrine amid tight security today.
Official reports said that 305 devotees, including 165 male, 41 females, 3 children and 96 'sadhus' left from the Bhagwati Nagar base camp in 9 vehicles.
The Amarnath land row has brought down the figure of pilgrims coming from across the country to visit the holy cave shrine situated in South Kashmir.
The Number of Amarnath pilgrims leaving for the cave shrine of Lord Shiva had declined to the season's low at 265 'yatris' yesterday.
Hundreds of people have cancelled their plans for the pilgrimage, following massive protests and subsequent curfew restrictions in the winter capital city of the state.
The two-month long yatra was flagged off on June 18.
