The Kedarnath area was struck by a major calamity in 2013 which caused massive loss of human lives and large scale destruction of property and infrastructure in Uttarakhand, including the shrine of Kedarnath.

          During his visit to Kedarnath on 20th October last year, Hon’ble Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, directed the local government to take steps for reconstruction of Kedarnath area. Hon’ble Prime Minister had also suggested that the efforts  be made to help develop Kedarnath as a ‘Smart Township’. The State Government of Uttarakhand is also taking steps to restore the shrine and the surrounding area to its pristine glory, while providing devotees with all modern amenities and services. To meet  this goal, the State Government has now constituted ‘Shri Kedarnath Charitable Trust’ to seek funds for Shri Kedarnath Dham reconstruction works.

Indian citizens/people of Indian origins may consider contribution to the noble cause, through the Kedarnath Charitable Trust. Detailed information about the Trust, as well as online donation facility, is available on http://shrikedarnathcharitabletrust.uk.gov.in/. Kindly contact for any other information to Shri V.S. Chauhan, Joint Director, Tourism, Government of Uttarakhand (Mobile No.9412998506).
