rare phenomenon has been highly applauded by even other religions and they
recorded it with inexplicable joy. The famous An-i - Akari of Abul Fazl embodies
this rare phenomenon with great gusto. "Amarnath is considered a shrine of g cat sanctity. When the new moon
rises, from her throne of rays, a bubble as it were of ice is formed in the cave
which daily increases little by little for fifteen days, till it is some what
higher than two yards, of the measure of yard determined by His Majesty: with
the waning of moon the image likewise begins to decrease, till no trace of it
remains when the moon disappears". Needless to prolong that every national
who visits it, expresses his infinite joy in such terms, bearing testimony to
his acceptance of the divinity presiding in the cave.
This cave temple lies KM off Pahalgam accessible by walking.
