‘Charri Yatra’ begins from Chamba, will reach Manimahesh on Sep 5

The procession of the ‘Charri Yatra’ (holy mace) of Lord Shiva during the Manimahesh pilgrimage started today from the 1,000-year-old Lakshmi Narayan temple in Chamba town, amidst beating of drums and playing of ‘shehnais’.

It will reach Manimahesh Lake on Radhashthmi, the birth day of Krishna’s consort Radha, Sep 5, when more than one lakh devotees are expected to take a dip in the oval-shaped, glacier-fed holy Manimahesh Lake. The 15-day Manimahesh pilgrimage in the interiors of Chamba district officially began Aug 22.
