MATHURA, INDIA, July 5, 2001: Hundreds of thousands of pilgrims have assembled at Giriraj to walk the 23-kilometer circumabulation route of Mathura. Five hundred buses and a number of special trains have proven insufficient to keep up with the influx of pilgrims. The circumabulation route, parikrama marg, is described as "a sea of heads." District Magistrate Narendra Bhushan and senior Police Superintendent Sri Hari Ram Sharma, in charge of keeping order, are taking special precautions against anti-social elements, according to this report.
