fisher2406 One of the squeezes we had to make our way through, deep inside The Starlight Cave System. Limestone and Marble formations.
Zero light meaning the rock is super grippy as nothing can grow inside.

Long exposure and some head lamp light to capture the image.

akasagarbha_aka_oscar This is Amarnath cave in Hindi अमरनाथ गुफा is a Hindu shrine located in Jammu and Kashmir, India. The cave is situated at an altitude of 3,888 m about 88 mi from Srinagar, the capital of Jammu and Kashmir and reached through Pahalgam town. The shrine forms an important part of Hinduism, and is considered to be one of the holiest shrines in Hinduism. The cave is surrounded by snowy mountains. The cave itself is covered with snow most of the year except for a short period of time in summer when it is open for pilgrims. Thousands of Hindu devotees make an annual pilgrimage to the Amarnath cave on challenging mountainous terrain to see an icestalagmite formed inside the cave.Inside the 40 m (130 ft) high Amarnath cave, the stalagmite is formed due to freezing of water drops that fall from the roof of the cave on to the floor and grows up vertically from the cave floor.It is considered to be a Shiva Linga by Hindus. The Cave waxes during May to August, as snow melts in the Himalayas above the cave and the resultant water seeps into the rocks that form the cave and gradually wanes thereafter. As per the religious beliefs, it has been claimed that the lingam grows and shrinks with the phases of the moon reaching its height during the summer festival, although there is no scientific evidence for this belief.According to a Hindu legend, this is the cave where Shiva explained the secret of life and eternity to his divine consort, Parvati.Two other ice formations represent Parvati and Shiva's son, Ganesha.The main purpose of the annual pilgrimage to the cave is worship of the ice stalagmite Lingam. Long time ago it is believed that The Vale of Kashmir was submerged under water and Kashyapa Muni drained it through a series of rivers and rivulets. Therefore, when the waters drained, Bhrigu Muni was the first to have Darshan of Lord Amarnath. Thereafter, when people heard of the Lingam, it became an abode of Lord Bholenath for all believers and a pilgrimage which is done by lakhs of people each year. #lingam #shiva #parvaiti #hindu #hinduism #Ganesha #stalagmite #om #mantra #verdic #Om #ॐ #Amarnathcave #pilgrimage #hindushrine #brahaman #prayer #ice 3d
