Amarnath Cave

Amarnath Cave is situated at a staggering height of 3,888 m (12,760 ft) in state of Jammu and Kashmir, India. It is at a distance of 141 km (88 miles) from Srinagar, capital of the Jammu and Kashmir. The Amarnath cave itself is at a towering height of 40 m (130 ft) with ice Shiva lingam inside. The ice lingam waxes and wanes with the waxing and waning of the Moon. It attains its full length form on the night of Shravan Purnima.

The Amarnath Cave temple is reported to be about 5,000 years old and was even mentioned in the ancient Hindu texts.   Though the original pilgrimage subscribes that the pilgrimage be undertaken from Srinagar, the more common practice nowadays is to begin journey at Pahalgam, and cover the distance to Amarnath and back in 5 days.

Amarnath Cave is also called as Amarnath Gufa.
