Nanda Devi Raj Jat Yatra Postage Stamps by India Post

Nanda Devi Raj Jat Yatra is a pilgrimage held every 12 years through the hills of Chamoli District in Uttarakhand in India. A commemorative stamp on the yatra and first day cover was launched by India Post.

Nanda Devi Raj Jat Yatra in 2013 was originally scheduled to be organised from August 29 but was cancelled in view of the massive damage caused by the June 2013 calamity along its route.

Nanda Devi Raj Jaat Yatra is a festival that stretches for three weeks. It is primarily a religious pilgrimage spanning for 280 kilometres. Murti of Goddess Nanda Devi is carried along the route by devotees.
