The Temple Built by Nature

Man has had no hand in the construction of the cave-temple of Amarnath in Kashmir. This holy abode of Shiva situated amid snow and ice at a height of nearly 3900 m. has been carved out of the rock by the forces of nature.
Icicles come down slowly and form the Linga, the Symbol of Shiva. The Linga inexplicably grows in size with the waxing of the moon and decreases with the waning.
Pilgrims have come to Amarnath from times immemorial. The most auspicious moment in the whole year for worship is the night of the full moon in the month of Sravan in July-August. From September to June the cave, covered by snow, is inaccessible.
