The sacred Amarnath yatra is an annual event falling in the month of Shravan according to Hindu calendar which coincides with the month of June-July. The natural Swayambhu lingam of Lord Shiva or Baba amaranth is made out of ice stalagmite and the name is chanted all through the difficult terrain of Himalayas as devotees snake their way through for Darshan cave at a height of 14,000ft. The air is filled with slogan ‘Jay Bhole’. The common notion is that darshan of Shiva is enough to get Mokesh after life. There are several stories about the discovery of the cave in Hindu text.
The antiquity of the place is gauged from the fact that people of the region worshipped Lord Shiva from the time of Mohajudaro and Harappa. It was believed over the centuries that Lord Shiva lived at three different places namely Kailash Parvat, lohit Giri, as well as Muzwan Parvat.
