Srinagar

Annual Amarnath Yarta has been resumed on Sunday after day long suspension due to shutdown in Kashmir on first death anniversary of Hizb commander Burhan wani.

Yatra was suspended on Saturday due to security reasons, officials said.

The 40-day-long Yatra to the Himalayan cave shrine started on June 29 and will end on August 7 on Shravan Purnima coinciding with the Raksha Bandhan festival.

So far, over one lakh pilgrims have reached the shrine located on the hills of Pahalgam.
