Amarnath YatraAmarnath Yatra is an annual pilgrimage for Hindus to the cave of Amarnath. The cave is devoted to Lord Shiva in Jammu and Kashmir. This event takes place during the months of July and August with the dates varying depending on the weather conditions and Purnima. Every year devotees await the Amarnath Yatra in which the holy shrine is displayed by the Indian Government in the main Amarnath Temple
The ultimate reason behind Amarnath Yatra Tour is that the cave is located at a height of 3,888 meters above sea level covered by snow throughout the year. During summers however, the snow melts from the cave which forms an ice stalagmite from within the cave. This stalagmite is considered to be the Shivlinga according to the Hindu mythology. This stalagmite further melts which produces two more ice formations which are supposedly the shrines of Parvati and Ganesha.
The Amarnath Cave Yatra is the most important pilgrimage according to Holy Scriptures and books. There is a common myth that in this cave Lord Shiva gave explanations for divinity and eternity to Parvati. Before disclosing the secret of eternity and bliss he told Parvati that whoever would hear this story would be eternal and immortal. During this story, Parvati fell asleep and a pair of pigeons heard the entire story and is still alive and if someone gets to see these pigeons during this journey it is considered auspicious. The cave is surrounded by alluring valleys and mountains.
The climatic conditions during the Amarnath pilgrimage are uncertain. Rainfall and snowfall is expected at any time or place during the tour. Sunny weather can turn into rain or snowfall within short time spans. The temperature is expected to dip up to -5°C.
The sacred shrine of the Shri Amarnath Yatra is situated in the Himalayas about 140 kilometers away from Srinagar and reached by Pahalgam in Jammu and Kashmir. The route mostly taken for this visit is a bus or train from the source destination to Jammu and Kashmir. From there, a private coach or cab can be hired to get to Srinagar.
