Amarnath Temple, India. Jammu and Kashmir, India. Unlike many of the cave temples of India, the Amarnath Temple was developed in a natural formation. Inside the cave is an ice stalagmite – an icicle jutting from the ground. The stalagmite grows and shrinks, modeling the phases of the moon. In the 3rd century BC, the Amarnath Cave was carved and painted in dedication to the Hindu god Shiva.

#Amarnath temple is a cave temple located in Jammu and Kashmir. It is about 75 ft high and at least 80 ft deep, with its outer mouth measuring about 40 yards across. It remains under the snow throughout the year except during the summer months of June and July when the snow melts enough to make it accessible. This is the only time when devotees make the annual pilgrimage to Amarnath Yatra.
