The length of this cave (depth inwards) is 19 meters and width is 16 meters. The cave is 11 meters high. Amarnath Cave is one of the main religious places of Lord Shiva.
Amarnath is called the pilgrimage of pilgrimages because it is here that Lord Shiva told Mother Parvati the secret of immortality.
The main feature here is the formation of a natural Shivling from snow in the holy cave. It is also called Swayambhu Himani Shivling due to its formation from natural snow.
