AMARNATH 
(The Waxing and waning Sivalinga of Amarnath)

The story begins in the dim past with Gonanda I on the throne of Kashmir, a contemporary of Jarasandha, the close associate of Kamsa of Mathura. As we move with the chronicle, we learn that Damodara, son of Gonanda I was killed by Yadavas. His wife Yasomoti, the then pregnant queen was preferred by Sri Krishna, the Yadhukulabhusan to rule the kingdom till here progeny came to age, since the land of Kashmir is itself Parvathi 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 Seshanag lake occupies a pre-eminent place. The famous Seshanag lake lying between Chandanvadi and Wavjan was constructed by Susravasa Naga and the glory of this Naga is elaborately described in the Rajatarangani 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 by his soul power. Susravasa gave his handsome daughter Chandralekha to Visakha in marriage out of gratitude. A memorable fitting recompense.
