Baba Chamliyal shrine ready to welcome tourists for annual mela starting June 27 | Travel.

The annual mela at the revered shrine of Baba Chamliyal near the International Border in Jammu and Kashmir’s Samba district is set to kick off on June 27, attracting thousands of devotees each year. The shrine, dedicated to Baba Dalip Singh Manhas, also known as Baba Chamliyal, has historically symbolized Indo-Pakistan camaraderie. However, since 2018, the shrine has not received any delegations from Pakistan due to tragic incidents of cross-border firing.

Security arrangements, fire safety protocols, traffic management, and health services deployment are among the top priorities for officials gearing up for the annual event. A ‘Lost and Found’ counter will be established, and the quality and pricing of food items will be monitored closely. The Roads and Buildings department has been tasked with ensuring road maintenance, while strategic parking spots will be designated by the Revenue, police, and transport departments.

The Public Health Engineering (PHE) Department will guarantee a steady water supply, with backup water tankers on standby. The Power Development Department (PDD) will oversee lighting and power supply, ensuring uninterrupted service throughout the mela. The Tourism department will provide guidance to devotees through hoardings and banners, while various government schemes and welfare programs will be showcased at educational stalls set up by different departments.

As the annual mela approaches, preparations are in full swing to make the event a safe and enjoyable experience for all attendees. From honoring traditions to enhancing visitor experiences, the shrine of Baba Chamliyal is gearing up to welcome tourists for a memorable and spiritually enriching celebration.
