Ladakh is celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr on Saturday with the moon being sighted in Kargil.
"The moon was sighted in Kargil yesterday so we are celebrating Eid in Ladakh today," a local spoke to news agency ANI.
Unlike any other Eid in the cold desert, people would be offering their prayers at home. The streets and markets lack the hubbub of Ladakhis' usual festivities.
