Save Sharda Committee Kashmir Regd on invitation of Sringeri Dakshnayam Sharda Mutt received panchloha ( 5 metals) Sharda Murti for ongoing Sharda Temple at LoC Teetwal in Kashmir. In a holy function at Sringeri , the Shankracharya of Sringeri mutt Swami vidushekhara ji handed over the idol of Sharda Mata to the Head of the committee Sh. Ravinder Pandita in presence of many kashmiri Pandit community members. This 3 ft weighing 100 kgs murti will be taken in a yatra early next year to Teetwal Kashmir where it will be installed in the new Sharda yatra temple there.
Speaking on the occasion Founder of Save Sharda Committee Sh. Ravinder Pandita said that he is very grateful to sringeri mutt for having supported us in reclaiming the lost heritage of 1947 at Teetwal. “ There used to be a Dharamshala & a sikh Gurudwara here in Teetwal which was burnt during Qabali raids in 1947. We got the land from locals in September 2021 during our annual yatra on this traditional route od Sharda Peeth yatra, that lies in PoK now. The official Charri Mubarak would proceed from teetwal to Chilhana onwards to Sharda Peeth those days. We feel blessed on this historic moment” said Ravinder Pandita. The work on this heritage temple is likely to be completed in November and the murti will be carried to Teetwal early next year for installation and final inauguration. Meanwhile the committee is constructing the sikh Gurudwara also the work on which is nearly complete.
