Girnar Parikrama officially started

Junagadh: The Girnar Parikrama which is organized yearly is now officially started. Loads of people are visiting Girnar in Junagadh for Parikrama by bus, train, and private vehicles from outstations. Due to heavy rush in trains and buses, people are even risking their life by traveling on vehicle's rooftop to perform Girnar parikrama. Also, people are ready to face other challenges to perform the Parikrama.

The Parikrama of Garvi Gadh Girnar officially started from Sunday midnight. But, some of the enthusiastic devotes had already started their Parikrama 5 days before. For the accurate counting of devotes performing parikrama, one counting point has been installed by the forest department at Nal Pani ni Ghodi. As per counting on 31st October at 6 p.m. 4,33,070 devotees had already crossed the point. Still, the flow of visitors is continuous.
