Dehradun, May 18: Prime Minister Narendra Modi meditated at a holy cave near the Kedarnath temple in Uttarakhand.

The Prime Minister will spend the night at the ‘Dhyan Kutia’ in Kedarnath and will fly to Badrinath on Sunday.

In pictures shared by news agency ANI, PM Modi can be seen meditating in a cave, dressed in saffron robes.

He would return to the national capital later on Sunday.

Earlier in the day, PM Modi offered prayers at the historic lord Shiva shrine and later he took an all-terrain vehicle to review the reconstruction work in Kedarnath, which was damaged in the June 2013 deluge.

Uttarakhand Chief Secretary Utpal Kumar Singh briefed him about the restoration work.

Security has been tightened around both the shrines in view of the Prime Minister’s visit, said Ashok Kumar, Director General (Law and Order).

This is the Prime Minister’s fourth visit to Kedarnath, which is perched up at a height of 11,657 feet and is surrounded by snow-clad peaks, in the past two years.
