It is said that to be first to reach for darshan of Bhole Nath Shivshankar there was a war between Devtas and Rakshas . With the power of Shiv , devtas could kill the rakshas in such large number that the heap of their dead bodies has resulted in this high mountain.

  • Sheshnag : This second day’s trek of 12 kms from Chandanwari is through Pissu Top and spectacular, primeval countryside, and reaches Sheshnag – a mountain which derives its name from its Seven Peaks, resembling the heads of the mythical snake. The Journey to Sheshnag follows steep inclines on the right bank of a cascading stream and wild scenery untouched by civilisation. The second night’s camp at Sheshnag overlooks the deep blue waters of Sheshnag lake, and glaciers beyond it. There are legends of love and revenge too associated with Sheshnag, and at the camp these are narrated by campfires . The stillness of a pine scented Himalayan night increases your inner joy. Yatris can take bath and get their fatigue alleviated. It is beautiful and scenic.

  • Panchtarni : From Sheshnag one has to climb steep height up across Mahagunas Pass at 4276 mtrs.(14000 ft) for 4.6 KM and then descending to the meadow lands of Panchtarni at a height of 3657 mtrs (12000 ft). The last camp enroute to the Holy Cave is made here on third day. Here one faces cold winds which cause the skin to crack . Hence cold cream / Vaseline are very useful for protection of skin. Some Yatris are also effected by deficiency of oxygen .Some may get the feeling of vomiting . So dry fruit like Allu Bukhara ,sour and sweet eatables like Lemon are useful to control these symptoms . The route to Mahagunas is full of rivulets , water falls , springs . Panchtarni is a very beautiful place in the feet of BHAIRAV MOUNT. Five Rivers flow here . It is said that the five rivers origanated from Lord Shiva's Hairs (Jataon). Pilgrims camp at Panchtarni on the 3rd night

Amarnath Yatra At A Glance

Amarnath Dham located in Kashmir near Baltal is one of the most important Hindu Dhams in India. Going on a pilgrimage tour to Amarnath is regarded as something a devout Hindu, especially the Shaivites (Lord Shiva believers) must do at least once in his/her life time.

Amarnath Cave

Situated in a narrow gorge 46 kilometers from Pahalgam and 14 kilometes from Baltal, Amarnath Shrine stands at an altitude of 3,888 m. Though the Hindu scriptures and legends subscribes that the Amarnath yatra be undertaken from Srinagar, the more common practice is to begin journey at Chandanwari near Pahalgam or the more popular shorter route from Baltal. Pahalgam is 96 Kms from Srinagar whereas Baltal is approximately 95 kilometers from Srinagar

Amarnathji is considered to be one of the major Hindu Dhams. The holy cave is the abode of Lord Shiva. The guardian of the absolute, Lord Shiva, the destroyer, is enshrined in the form of an ice-lingam in this cave. This lingam is formed naturally, which is believed to wax and wane with the moon.

Amarnath Yatra: Who Discovered The Cave? All You Need to Know About The Pilgrimage

Amarnath is in news for all the wrong reasons as of now. An LeT attack left 7 Amarnath pilgrims dead in Anantnag and have also rendered 19 people grievously injured. However, the attack has not diminished people’s enthusiasm to meet their snow-made Lord Shiva. People are not discouraged and are ready to face any danger. When did the Amarnath Yatra begin and what is its significance?

Amarnath Yatra is a long and arduous journey to the Amarnath cave situated in Pahalgam, Jammu and Kashmir. The shrine is situated at a height of 3,888 m in the Himalayas. Every year thousands of pilgrims scale the height to worship the Shiva linga made of ice.

The Mythology
According to mythology, Lord Shiva told the secret of his immortality here. However, an essay in the Wikipedia says completely different story. It is being said that it was Bhrigu Muni who discovered the Amarnath Shrine.

The History
According to folklore, the cave was discovered by a shepherd named Buta Malik, who was a Muslim, in 1850. He had been grazing his cattle in the mountain when a Sufi saint gave him a bag of coal, which turned out to be gold later. He went back to thank the saint but found the cave and the Shiva Linga. According to Indian Express, the descendants of Malik had been the custodian of the shrine. Priests from Dashnami Akhada and Purohit Sabha Mattan had been taken care of the holy site. In 2,000, the Malik family and other organisation were evicted and the Amarnath Shrine Board was formed to look after the affairs of the shrine. It is headed by the governor of the state.
