People have started going on pilgrimages since the COVID-19 cases are decreasing. Many people who want to go to such places are in a hurry all of sudden and want to finish their trips before the onset of the COVID third wave. Most such people opt for Train travel since it is the convenient and cheapest form of travel available.
The IRCTC has decided to set up three special trains for passengers within the South Central Railway. These special trains start from Hyderabad. The North India Yatra will reach Hyderabad from Agra, Mathura, Vaishnodevi, Haridwar, and Amritsar. It starts on August 29th.
The Mahalaya Pind Dhan Yatra includes Varanasi, Gaya, and Prayagraj. It starts on September 25th (During Pitru Paksha). The South India Yatra will reach Hyderabad from Kanchipuram, Mahabalipuram, Thanjavur, Madurai, Rameshwaram, and Kanyakumari. It will start on October 19.
