Amarnath Ice Shiva Lingam Melting Due to Hot Climate

The annual Amarnath Yatra 2007 is all set to begin on June 30th but the Ice Shiva Lingam (Shivling) has started melting due to the unusual hot climate. When Jammu and Kashmir governor visited the Amarnath Cave Shrine during the first week of June, the natural Shiva Lingam was about 15 to 16 feet but now it has reduced to 8 to 10 feet.
Although the official Yatra starts on June 30th, pilgrims have already started visiting the shrine.
Legend has it that Lord Shiva narrated the secrets of immortality and creation of Universe to Goddess Parvati at this cave shrine.

Below down is a video by CNN-IBN on the melting Amarnath Shiva Lingam.
