In our Hindu religion we worship many gods and goddesses. For us, our religion is paramount. When we want to worship Shri Bholenath Shankar Bhagwan before our age, then God has given us the benefit of darshan after 2 years. The Shivling of Lord Shankar can be seen in Amarnath and the photos of this Shivling are now going viral on social media.
It is also called Swayambhu Himani Shivling (Barfani Baba) as it is made of natural snow. From Ashadhi Purnima to Rakshabandhan, millions of people come here for the holy Himaling Darshan which takes place in the entire month of Shravan.
perimeter of the cave is about one and a half hundred feet and drops of ice water dripping from it in many places. There is a place in which a Shivling about ten feet high is formed by dripping snow drops. As the moon rises and falls, so does the size of the ice. By Shravan Purnima it comes in its full shape and gradually shrinks by the month of Amas. Surprisingly, this Shivling is made of solid ice, while the cave usually contains raw ice which crumbles at the touch of a hand.
There are two ways to go to Amarnath Yatra. One from Pahalgam and the other from Sonmarg Baltal. That means to reach Pahalgam and Baltal by any vehicle, you have to use your own feet to get from here. Rides are provided for the disabled or the elderly. The road from Pahalgam is considered easy and convenient. The distance from Baltal to Amarnath cave is only 15 kilometers
