AMARNATH
The Waxing and Waning Sivalinga of Amarnath

ORIGIN OF THE KASHMIR MANDAL

The story begins in the past with Gonanda I on the throne of Kashmir, a contemporary of Jarasandlia, the close, associate of Kamsa of Mathura. As we move with the chronicle, we learn that Damodara, sun of Gunanda  was killed by Yadavas. His wife Yasomoti, the then pregnant queen was preferred by Krishna, Yadhukulabhusan to rule kingdom till her progency came to. age, since the land of. the kashmir is Varvathi incarnate, and the ruler of that country is the amsa or particle of Siva, and so Krishna was against annexing it. Many historical personages succeeded and monumental constructions were left behind as relics. Among them the Seshanaga lake occupies a pre-eminent place. The famous Seshanaga lying between Chandanvadi and Wavjan was constructed by Susravasa Naga and the glory of this Naga is elaborately described in the Raja Tarangani of Kalhana. This ruler of eminence had two beautiful daughters named Iravathi and Chandralekha. Due to evil machinations of a bogus Sadhu, he encountered many problems. Knowing the helplessness of the noble king, a brahmin by name Visakha came to his rescue and relieved him of his anxieties with his atmic powers. Susravasa gave his handsome daughter Chandralekha to Visakha in marriage out of gratitude.
