A popular pilgrimage destination and one of the most revered Hindu shrines, Amarnath Cave houses an ice stalagmite recognized by believers as the Shiva Linga. Sited 3,888 m (12,760 ft) above sea level, this 5,000 years old shrine is said to be the place where the supreme god revealed the secret of life to his divine wife Parvati--the other two ice formations represent Parvati and their son Ganesha. Devotees believe that the lingam grows to its full size during the festival of Shravani Mela. At that time, nearly 400,000 people visit the cave--taking a five day pilgrimage on foot or on horses. The stalagmite has shrunk during the last century affected by the global warming (according to environmentalists). Put Amarnath Cave and other Anantnag attractions into our Anantnag tourist route planner, and watch your holiday take shape.
