Chamba (Himachal Pradesh): The 14-day long pilgrimage to the glacier-fed Manimahesh lake, dedicated to Lord Shiva, in the Bharmour valley here began on Monday amidst religious fervour, an official said. The commencing of the pilgrimage located at a height of 13,500 feet coincides with Janmashtami, the festival celebrating Lord Krishna’s birth. It will conclude on Radha Ashtami on September 17. Every year, people trek to the oval shaped lake to catch a glimpse of Mount Kailash, believed to be the abode of Lord Shiva, and offer prayers. (IANS)
