A town in the Indian state of Uttarakhand began to sink into the ground

Joshimut, a town in the Indian Himalayan state of Uttarakhand, is sinking into the ground.

According to international media, cracks have started appearing in houses and roads in the town of Joshimut in the northern state of Uttarakhand, India.

Due to cracks in hundreds of houses in the area and sinking into the ground, the frightened residents are being shifted to safe places.

Residents say this is due to the construction of roads and tunnels for a nearby hydroelectric project. Earlier, a committee comprising experts was formed by the government to find out the reasons.

Residents said large numbers had already left their homes, with about 600 houses and hotels sinking into the ground in a town of about 20,000 people.

According to foreign media, Joshi Mutt, located at an altitude of about 1,800 meters above sea level, is an important center of several important religious places in the Himalayas, where thousands of pilgrims come every year.
