According to sources the ice Shiva Linga of Amarnath finds mention in the Mahabharata, Puranas and also Kalhana’s Rajatarangini. Many other ancient texts refer to the Shiva Linga in the Amarnath cave. Meanwhile the holy Amarnath cave is covered under snow for most of the year. It begins to shrink in summer months, as snow in the higher regions of the mountains begins to melt, which is the time thousands of devotees make this difficult pilgrimage.
Hindu belief has it that the waxing and waning is directly related to phases of the moon. Meanwhile in earlier times, devotees would hike through this Himalayan region under trying circumstances. Even now lakh of devotees visit the holy Amarnath cave reaching Pahalgam and then making the arduous journey to the shrine of Bholenath.
Accordingly the Shravani mela in the holy month of Shravana and especially
the full moon day of Shravana Pournami attracts a large number of devotees,
tong and old, who throng the sacred site in the face of difficult weather
conditions and harsh natural terrain.
