Jammu: Over 2.03 lakh pilgrims have paid obeisance at the Amarnath shrine in south Kashmir so far, even as the yatra remained suspended due to heavy rains on Wednesday.

"On the 14th day, a total of 17,515 pilgrims who stayed overnight at the holy cave paid obeisance. Till date 2,03,565 yatris had darshan of the lingam at the cave," an official spokesman said here today.

Due to incessant rains throughout the day, the yatra remained suspended in all the sectors from Jammu onwards.

"No yatri was allowed to move from the Access Control gates of Domel and Chandanwari and from any of the yatra camps during the day due to slippery track conditions," the spokesman said.
