Brahma Kamal blossoms at Kedarnath’s Brahma Vatika, lures many pilgrims

The precious Brahma Kamal blossoming at the Bhrahma Vatika founded by Police in Kedarnath is attracting the attention of many pilgrims. This is for the first time that in the first fortnight of June, the high altitude flower Brahma Kamal has blossomed in the valley. The Police deployed at Kedarnath for Baba Kedar Yatra have set an example for environmental conservation. Under the supervision of station-in-charge Vipin Chandra Pathak, the Brahma Vatika was established in 2015 at the campsite of the Police officials.

Along with Brahma Kamal, Rudraksha and other Himalayan plants were sown here. This, in turn, has lured pilgrims to admire the beauty of the exotic Himalayan flowers. Last year also a parterre garden was planted by the police and they had also grown potatoes here. From the past two years, the IAS aspirants and IMA cadets have been visiting this garden. On the first day of Kedarnath pilgrimage, police officers planted saplings of several flowering plants here and now the garden is proudly showcasing five Brahma Kamal flowers, tempting the Kedarnath pilgrims to savour its beauty.
