amarnath cave

JAMMU : The holy Shivling at the Amarnath cave has shrunk to almost half its actual size barely two weeks ahead of the commencement of the annual Hindu pilgrimage.

            Reports claim that over 40% of the ice stalagmite has melted even before the yatra that begins June 28, raising questions over how the thousands of pilgrims who trek the treacherous mountainous ravines to reach the holy cave will be able to chance upon a ‘darshan’ of the same.

            The presence of a large number of pilgrims inside the cave is sure to further raise the temperature inside the premises thereby further damaging the stalagmite figure.

            The premature melting of the ‘Shivlingam’ is rumored to be the effect of either global warming or due to the heavy presence of pilgrims and security personnel inside the Amarnath cave. Earlier, Jammu and Kshmir Governor NN Vohra formed a two-member team to review the status of arrangements for the yatra and the duo could meet stakeholders to discuss ways to handle the issue.
