Prime Minister Narendra Modi offers prayers at the Himalayan shrine of Badrinath in Uttarakhand this morning. Mr Modi yesterday offered prayers at the Kedarnath.

Dressed in a grey traditional pahari attire, Prime Minister offered prayers for about 30 minutes and undertook a circumambulation of the Kedarnath shrine situated at a height of 11,755 feet near the Mandakini river.

Mr Modi then went inside a cave near the shrine to meditate. Draped in a saffron shawl, Modi was seen meditating at the holy cave.

Prime Minister also took stock of development work in Kedarpuri. Uttarakhand chief secretary Utpal Kumar Singh briefed the prime minister about the restoration work in the Kedarnath shrine.This is Mr Modi's fourth visit to the temple dedicated to Lord Shiva in the last two years.

The portals of Kedarnath and Badrinath shrines reopened for devotees earlier this month after the winter break.

Prime Minister arrived at the Jolly Grant airport in Dehradun yesterday morning and then went directly to Kedarnath.
