Honeymoon Attractions in Amarnath
Sited atop an imperial height of around 4000m above sea level, resides the inimitable holy shrine of Amarnath. Amarnath, the cave temple of the immortal god, Lord Shiva; is one of the holiest Hindu pilgrims. The ice cave derives its holiness from the legend that Lord Shiva and Mata Parvati have both done years of austerity in this cave and the Shiva Linga (Ice Linga), which naturally re-appears every savaan, was actually formed by Mata Parvati herself.
It is said that the way to reach Lord Shiva is always difficult; Mansarovar and Amarnath yatras are the most evident exemplar to this fact. The impassable path and restricted pilgrim access makes the journey even more desirable, like all other precious and difficult to attain things.
