The holy shrine of Amarnath Ji, or Amarnath Temple, is located at an elevation of 3,888 meters approx, about 29 kilometers from Pahalgam. Inside the cave is a Shiva Lingam (a phallus-shaped formation made of ice), considered to be the holiest symbol by Hindus all across the globe. Devotees visit it in large numbers from June to August, with the pilgrimage tour famously known as Amarnath Yatra, which begins from Chandanwari. It is considered to be one of the 18 Maha Shakti Peethas, or the holiest shrines in Hinduism. Besides seeking blessings at the Amarnath Temple, the views surrounding are extraordinarily magnificent.
To worship the supreme god of Hinduism millions of devotees trek every year through icy glaciers to reach Amarnath. However, for those who can't trek or walk for long distances, Shri Amarnath Shrine boards organize Yatra by Regular Helicopter services.
