the form of ice. It is this holy kshetra, where Muslims enjoy more
or loss equal status with Brahmins in sharing the offerings and also
distributing Prasadam. It is to this holy shrine H.H. Sankaracharya
of Sarada Peeth of Kashmir leads a procession on foot every year in
the month of Sravana from Srinagar. It is this Kshetra that traces
the origin of several monuments made by philanthropic rulers of

It is to this yatra alone that the Stale Government is evincing
utmost interest in arranging every amenity, like loud,
accommodation, transport, medical, post and telegraph, police etc.,

in linga to the believers of every 'ism' in theistic word.
