More construction work around Kedarnath temple is not right
Geological Survey of India (GSI) scientist Deepak Srivastava and his team surveyed the Kedarnath temple and its surrounding areas from 1991 to 1994. During this, the report was prepared by the scientists while living there in every season. The report was released under the name ‘On Integrated Ice, Snow Avalanche and Quaternary Geological Studies in Mandakini Valley around Kedarnath, District Chamoli, Uttar Pradesh’.

It was said that much construction work around Kedarnath temple is not right. According to the report, the Garudchatti area, located one km before the Kedarnath temple on the left side of the Mandakini river, was described as avalanche free. Scientists said that Garudchatti can be developed as a township to pressurize Kedarnath during the Yatra period. He also described the area as safe from landslides.

Even after the disaster of June 2013, in the month of October, GSI experts conducted a geological survey of Garudchatti. Even then this area was found safe from the point of view of disaster. But even after eight years, Garudachatti remains a victim of neglect. The Rambara-Garudchatti-Kedarnath walkway is still demolished ahead of Rambada.

The matter of reconstruction of this road is implicated in the Forest Act. At the same time, bridge work is going on on the Mandakini river to connect Kedarnath to Garudchatti. This area is still deserted today. Mahesh Bagwadi, former president of Kedarnath Business Council, Teerthpurohit Laxminarayan Jugran, Baba Lalit Ji Maharaj say that no official has taken care of Garudchatti since the disaster.

After the disaster, there has been strong erosion on both sides of the Mandakini river, whose effect is now visible on the Garudchatti area as well. The day of earthquake has reached near the buildings built in Garudachatti. But the action plan for the security of this area has not even been prepared. On 20 October 2017, PM Modi remembered the days spent in Garudchatti upon reaching Kedarnath Dham. He did spiritual practice here in 1980 for one and a half months. He insisted on developing this place. After this, the government had built a three and a half km walk from Kedarnath to Garudchatti. A steel girder bridge is being built on the Mandakini river to connect this route with Kedarnath.

Kedarnath Dham cannot be imagined without Garudachatti. Before the disaster, this area was the main destination of travelers and saints. But after the disaster, neither efforts are being made to connect this area with the temple nor facilities are being mobilized here.

There is currently no plan to develop Garudachatti. I don’t know what survey was done in the past. The report of GSI will be studied, based on that the plan will be prepared.
