AMARNATH 
(The Waxing and waning Sivalinga of Amarnath)

Uniqueness 

The waxing and waning snow-linga of Amarnath is a wonder of wonders of our Punya Bharat, luring several thousands of pilgrims every year, in the months of Sravana and Bhadrapada equivalent to August, September in English calendar. This nature made linga is imbued with such mystery and sanctity that it is exercising an irresistible fascination over ardent Saivates in particular and theists in general, since time immemorial. According to tradition, it is here Maheswar, the all-benevolent Lord distributed amrit -- nectar to mukkoti devathas to making them immortal and immune against the danavakrityas of asuras. And they in grateful devotion named Him Amarnath. It is here, on ode full moon night, Lord Maheswar explained to Parvathi the secrets of creation together with attainment of Moksha. And it is this sacred spot that witnessed the metamorphosis of Uma Maheswar into doves, when His narration of that secret was over-heard by His birth as. It is this place that is giving darsan of Uma Maheswar and Ganapathi in the form of ice-lingas. It is this holy kshetra, where Muslims enjoy more or less equal status with Brahmins in sharing the offerings and also distributing prasadam.
