Prez Murmu inaugurates Skywalk & Parvati Bhawan at Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine

Katra, Oct 12: President of India Droupadi Murmu on Thursday inaugurated Sky Walk and remodeled Parvati Bhawan at Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine, Katra of Jammu and Kashmir.

The work on the much-needed skywalk, which would separate the pilgrims coming to and leaving the shrine near the Bhawan area, started in August last year and is expected to be over before Navratri in October.

The decision to extend the skywalk was taken after a stampede earlier this year, which left 12 people dead and 16 injured near Gate No. 3 at Vaishno Devi Bhawan.

The skywalk project was proposed by Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha in a bid to decongest the Vaishno Devi Bhawan.

The skywalk will stand 20 feet above the surface and will help reduce the chaos between Manokama Bhawan and Gate Number 3.
