Baba Amarnath History:

OnceGoddess ParvatiaskedLord Mahadev(Shiv ji),”why is it that you are immortal but I have to come after new birth, after every birth and again you have to get after a lot of tenacity. When I have to get you, then why my austerity and such a difficult test? What are the secrets of getting Naramund Mala lying in your throat and immortal?”

Baba Amarnath Gufa:

According to mythological beliefs, the cave of Amarnath is the place where Lord Shiva had told the secret ofGodess Parvatibeingimmortal, during that time there were no other creatures in the ‘two Jyoti’. Neither Mahadev’s Nandi nor his serpent, neither Ganesh nor Ganga nor Kartikey.

While searching for a secret place, Mahadev left his vehicle Nandi first, the place Nandi left on was calledPahalgam. Amarnath Yatra starts from right here. On going a little ahead from here, Shivaji separated the moon from his hair, the place where he did this is calledChandanwadi. After this, he left Ganga inPanchtaraniand his snake left inSheshnag. thus the name of this stop wasSheshnag.
In Amarnath Yatra, the next step after Pahalgam is Ganesh Top, it is believed that Mahadev left his son Ganesh at this place. This place is also calledMahaguna’s mountain. After this, where Mahadev abandoned the insect named Pissu, the place isPissu valley.
Thus Mahadev separated himself from the life-style of the five elements. After this Mahadev entered into a cave with Parvati. No third person, that is, no person, animal or bird could hear the story going inside the cave, so they lit the fire around. Then Mahadev started the story of the mysterious secret of life.
It is said that listening to the story, the Goddess Parvati fell asleep and Mahadev did not know it, she kept on saying. This story was listening to twowhite pigeonsat that time and in the middle the voice of gobbing was blowing. Mahadev thought that Parvati was listening to the story and was humming in between. so his attention did not go on to the pigeons.

Both pigeons kept listening, when ka Mahadev’s meditation on Parvati came to an end, they came to know that she was sleeping. So who was listening to the story? After seeing his eyes on two pigeons, Mahadev got angry. At the same place, the pair of pigeons came to his shelter and said, God has listened to you from the Amarkatha.
