Lord Shiva; also known as the ‘Transformer’ or the ‘Destroyer’ or the God who follows as ascetic life and resides in the Mount Kailash, is worshiped in the form of a ‘Lingam’ throughout the world.
According to the legends, the Lord, who is considered as one of the most powerful deities in Hinduism, is believed to reveal the secrets of His immortality to his wife Mother Parvati in this cave. Legends also has it that while narrating the tales of his endless life, a pair of pigeon overheard the secret and gained immortality. Even till now, devotees find it hard to believe when they find a pair of pigeons within the cave; technically speaking, the extreme climatic conditions of the cave is hardly suitable for birds like pigeons.
Since ages and centuries, during the ‘Sharavan’ month of Hindu calendar (July – August) or the summers, as the glaciers around the cave starts melting, the droplets freezes down at the bosom of the cave. The freezing of the droplets give rise to an ice Lingam, and folklores has it that during this time, the Lord descends down to Earth and blesses his pious devotees. This devout faiths and beliefs of the devotees attracts them towards this cave despite of all the challenges on the route to the Amarnath Cave.
