Joshimath, a popular tourist destination in Uttarakhand is on edge as 610 of its 4,500 structures are showing signs of collapsing. A small town in Uttarakhand - Joshimath city has been built on an ancient landslide material that's why it doesn't have high load-bearing capacity. This makes the area extremely vulnerable to ever-burgeoning infrastructure and population.?

Over 60 residents who were living in uninhabitable homes in the sinking town of Joshimath were moved to temporary relief centres after authorities declared it a landslide-subsidence zone.

At least 90 more families reportedly need to be evacuated. Four to five locations in the Himalayan town have been designated as relief centres by the local government. Take a look at the horrifying photos inside the famous pilgrimage site in Uttarakhand.
