More than 25000 devotees attended the Mela. I congratulate the Lieutenant Governor of Jammu and Kashmir Shri Manoj Sinha, Central Armed Police Forces CAPFs, J&K Police, and the local administration on the successful completion of the Kheer Bhawani Mela. May the divine grace of Maa Kheer Bhawani always be with us.”

Kheer Bhawani Mela was started on the 26th of May and concluded on the 28th of May, i.e. on Jyeshtha Ashtami. On the first day of Mela, more than 2500 devotees reached the temple in 107 buses from Jammu.
