AMARNATH
The Waxing and Waning Sivalinga of Amarnath

The beautiful couple lived a memorably happy life in the capital of Kinneragrama ruled by king Nara, an infamous king who brought shame to his illustrious ,father, King Vibhishana II by his laxity of morals and frivolous behaviour. Due to misfortune, oil, day a horse entered the compound of Chandraleklia and ate away her grains spread out in the Sun light. In her attempt to drive away the stray horse, she patted on its back, and it left a golden imprint of her hand on horse's back. The oddity of the incident soon spread throughout the capital. Learning it, king Nara set his net and used all means to secure her for satisfying his carnality. He descended even to the nefarious level of asking her husband to part with her for quenching his kamadaha, but failed. In his hopeless passion for her, he decided to besiege the, house, but the couple, escaped before his atrocious plan was launched. Chandralekha with her husband Vishaka sought refuge in Susravasa Naga, her father. Flying into rage, he burnt the entire city of Nara and finally killed him. When remorse held him in tight grip, he started building lakes and laying roads connecting shrines with towns four the comforts of people in expiation of sins committed. Among the many, Seshanaga lake on the way to Amarnath and Jamatri Saras arc, still standing, proclaiming his glory in its rise and fall.
