Senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, who is on a two-day visit to Jammu and Kashmir, offered prayers at the famous Ragnya Devi temple popularly known as Kheer Bhawani temple in Ganderbal district today morning.
He reached the temple nestled among mighty chinars in Tullamulla area of the central Kashmir district early in the morning. He was accompanied by the party’s general secretary organisation K C Venugopal.
“This was a private visit. Rahul ji wanted to pay obeisance at the temple,” a Congress leader told PTI.
Scores of party leaders and supporters were waiting outside the shrine complex to welcome the former Congress president. Rahul is also scheduled to visit the Dargah Hazratbal shrine on the banks of the Dal Lake here after the visit to the temple.
