The event, to be inaugurated by Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat, will be held at Kanva Ashram from November 20-24, the ashram Gurukul Vice Chancellor Vishwa Jayant Yogiraj said at a press conference here on Sunday.

"Yoga does not belong to any particular religion. It is essential for our physical health and mental peace," Professor of Deoband-based Jamiya Tibbiya Unani Medical college Yunus Kasmi said.
