This year's Amarnath Yatra, which started on 30 June, has seen over 1.5 lakh pilgrims visit the shrine. The 2022 Yatra is being held after a gap of 3 years as the revocation of Jammu and Kashmir's special status hampered the 2019 Yatra, and then the Covid-19 pandemic led to cancellations in 2020 and 2021.
