The week-long Kousar Nag Yatra, along with Chhari-Mubarak started from Reasi in Jammu division on Thursday.

The Tribune reported on Friday that the Yatra was flagged off by the Deputy Commissioner Reasi, early yesterday morning.

“Lot of enthusiasm and high spirit was visible on the faces of pilgrims hailing not only from Reasi but also from Jammu, Katra, Talwara Mahore, Chassana and other far-off areas, who sang bhajans and had queued up in the wee hours to take part in the yatra despite bad weather,” the news report said.

The Kousar Nag Yatra along with Charri Mubarak was organised successfully in the past due to which Reasi-Chassana route gained popularity.
