The unprecedented rains turned Kedarnath into a ghost town with bodies strewn all over.
Rain water gushed into the town from the summit behind the famous shrine carrying rocks and boulders, destroying everything on its path.Let’s have a look how Kedarnath is trying to limp back to normalcy:
Heavy rains, cloudburst and flash floods virtually submerged the famous Kedarnath shrine in mud and slush where 50 people died.
The temple town of Kedarnath, standing at a height of 11,760 feet was a picture of devastation after the overflowing Mandakini river wreaked havoc on the town.
The Ram Bada area, a busy spot near the temple, has been completely submerged and was not visible from rescue choppers.
The flash floods and landslides caused massive destruction in Kedarnath.
Rain water gushed into the town from the summit behind the shrine carrying rocks and boulders, destroying everything on its path.
Hotels and buildings seen damaged outside Kedarnath temple.
It will take a long time for the lives hit in one of Uttarakhand's worst natural disasters be rebuilt.
In the absence of roads rescue will be slow and rehabilitation torturous.
So, after the devastating storm, the people of Kedarnath have begun doing what they can to pick up and bring together the pieces of their disrupted existence.
