|Naturally formed Shivling inside Amarnath Cave in Kashmir draws thousands of pilgrims every year|
But as fate would have it a pair of pigeon who were inside the cave were not harmed and attained immortality by listening to Amar Katha (the secret of creation and immortality). This is why the cave came to be known as the Amarnath Cave.
Lord Shiva, who is the destroyer in Hinduism, is enshrined in the form of an ice-lingam in this cave. This lingam is formed naturally, which is believed to wax and wane with the moon.
Proper arrangements like uninterrupted power supply and water availability along the route are made by the authorities to ensure that pilgrims face lesser hardship.
Swami Vivekananda, a great Hindu Philosopher and thinker proclaimed that he had never been to something as inspiring and beautiful as Amarnath Cave.
