Lingam | Amarnath Holy Caves

MASI's real masi (aunty) recently went traveling up North in India - JAMMU & KASHMIR for a pilgrimage trip to Amarnath and she is back with some beautiful memories of her travel experience with: the gigantic snow clad mountains, tents, nature, & Lord Shiva.

Situated in a narrow gorge at the farther end of the Lidder Valley, Amarnath Holy Cave stands at 3,888 mtrs. and is 363 kms.

The Amarnath caves (अमरनाथ गुफा) are one of the most famous shrines in Hinduism, dedicated to the god Shiva, located in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir. The shrine is claimed to be over 5,000 years old and forms an important part of Hindu mythology. The cave where Shiva explained the secret of life and eternity to his divine consort Parvati

Inside the main Amarnath cave lies an ice stalagmite resembling the Shiva Linga, which waxes during May to August and gradually wanes thereafter.
