The Amarnath Yatra

The Pilgrimage to Amaranth, in the month of Sharavan (July - August) has the devote flock to this incredible shrine, where the image of Shiva, in the form of a lingam, is formed naturally of an ice-stalagmite, and which waxes and wanes with the moon. By its side are, fascinatingly, two more ice -lingams, that of Parvati, and their son, Ganesha
Situated in a narrow gorge at the farther end of Lidder valley, Amaranth stands at 3,888 m and is 46 km from Pahalgam and 141 km from Srinagar.

The Second approach to the Amarnath Cave is from Sonamarg via Baltal. BALTAL, which is a little charming valley lying in the foothills of Zojila Pass. The Holy Cave of Amarnath Ji is just a day’s journey away from here. The trail from Baltal to the Holy Cave lies along very steep hillsides. Several snow bridges on the fast flowing streams have to be crossed over, while during the Holy Cave is quite near, the trail from Pahalgam meets the Baltal route.

Mata Vaihno Devi Pilgrimage

The cave shrine of Mata Vasihnodeviji or Trikuta Bhagwati (alt: 5,200 ft.) has been a beacon of faith and fulfillment to millions of devotees from all over the world. The pilgrimage to the Shrine holds great significance for the pilgrims. Everyday of the year throngs of people surge up the steep pathways that cut across the Trikuta hillsides for mile after mile. This show of faith is finely interwoven with the cultural strands of the Indian subcontinent, and these pathways have been trod on for many centuries now. Popular belief holds that anybody who walks the Himalayan trail to the goddesses's abode to ask for a boon rarely goes back disappointed. There are many who journey year after year to pay obeisance regardless of their faith or belief, creed or class, caste or religion.

Hazratbal Shrine

This unmatched reverence is anchored in the love and respect for the Prophet Mohammad (Peace be upon him), whose Moi-e-Muqqadas, (the sacred hair or Holy Relic) is preserved here. This is displayed to the public on religious occasions, usually accompanied by festivals.

Kheer Bhawani

The Goddess Ragnya Devi is symbolised, as a sacred spring at Tula Mula Within the spring is a small marble temple. The devotees of the goddess fast and gather here on the eighth day of the full moon in the month of May when, according to belief, the goddess changes the colour of the spring's waters.
Martand, located atop a plateau, close to the township of Anantnag, has a temple dedicated to Surya, the "Sun God". Built by king Laitaditya Muktapida (7th to 8th century AD), it is a medieval temple with a colonnaded courtyard and the shrine in its centre. The temple complex has 84 columns and offers a commanding view of the valley of Kashmir.

Sindu Darshan

The mighty Sindhu (Indus) River symbolizes the power and permanence of the ancient Indian civilization, which evolved over a period of thousands of years. The archaeological discovery of the Indus Valley civilization, which flourished along its banks, has reinforced the antiquity of the Indian civilization. The journey of Sindhu (also spelt as Sindhu) through India transports one to a civilization going back 5,000 years. The Indus Valley civilization is synonymous from Harappa and Mohenjodaro.
Sindhu is divine. In the beginning was the word. The first recorded word was the Veda. The earliest mention of this great river is in the Vedas. The Sindhu - the cradle of Indian civilisation - finds its most dramatic description in the Rig Veda (circa.1500 BC).

The Sindhu Darshan or Sindhu Festival aims at projecting the Indus as a symbol of India's unity and communal harmony. Sindhu stands for peaceful coexistence and communal harmony. The Sindu Darshan Piligrimage is done on June.
