Bharat Jodo Yatra is a pilgrimage undertaken by Hindus to various sacred sites in India. The yatra typically lasts for a period of 40 days and covers a distance of approximately 3,000 kilometers and is undertaken by devotees from all over India. The pilgrimage includes visits to a number of holy sites, including the Char Dham (the four main pilgrimage sites of Badrinath, Kedarnath, Gangotri and Yamunotri), and the 12 Jyotirlinga temples. The yatra is considered to be a very holy and auspicious undertaking, and is said to bestow a number of blessings upon the devotees who undertake it.

The Bharat Jodo Yatra, dubbed the 'longest march' in the country over a century by the Congress, began with a rally in Kanyakumari. The 'padyatra,' or foot march, will start on Thursday. The 3,500-kilometer foot march will take 150 days.

The Congress's Bharat Jodo Yatra, which begins on Wednesday, ’ll notice 119 Bharat Yatris, along with former Congress President Rahul Gandhi, staying on the road, prepare meals at camp sites, and have access to laundry once every three days for the next 150 days as their yatra (foot march) crisscrosses through 12 states, covering over 3,570 kilometres from Kanyakumari to Kashmir.

59 containers mounted on trucks will serve as the travellers' sleeping quarters. Except for Mr. Gandhi, who will have his own container due to his security detail, the other yatris will have to bunk together. The majority of these containers can sleep 12 people.

The padayatra will arrive in Kerala on September 11 and will travel through the state for 18 days before arriving in Karnataka on September 30. If the Congress holds a presidential election on October 17, all yatris will be allowed to vote in the Bengaluru Congress office because the yatra will be there.
