The Amarnath yatra attracts lakhs of pilgrims every year who visit the site during Shravani Mela in July-August (Shravan month in Hindu calendar) – the only time in the whole year when the Amarnath Cave is accessible. The cave is placed at an altitude of 3,888m, about 141 km from Srinagar, the capital of Jammu and Kashmir and reached through Pahalgam town. The shrine has an important part to play in Hinduism and is considered to be one of the holiest shrines. The annual ‘Amarnath Yatra’ is marked by ‘Pratham Pujan’ which is said to invoke the blessings of Baba Amarnath. Moreover, since the ice is collected from the water dripping from the top of the cave due to the melting of the ice on top of it, the ‘lingum’ reaches a maximum around July-August when the ice caps around the cave are melting. Water seeps into the rocks that form the cave and progressively fades 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.
The Holy Cave Shrine is run by the Shri Amarnathji Shrine Board (SASB), constituted in 2000 with the Governor of Jammu and Cashmir as the former President of the State Legislature. The Shrine of Shri Amarnathji is the Holy Cave Shrine of Shri Amarnathji.
Because of the procedures involved, a registration process by Step – By – Step Registration for Shri Amarnath Yatra 2020 will be followed well before the beginning of Yatra.
As of last year’s date of registration, Shri Amarnathji Shrine Board (SASB) has introduced’ Group Registration’ to make it easy for intending pilgrims to register for a group of families, friends and nearby people.
For an announced period, the Group registration is available. Yatri Groups are entitled to register under SASB Group Registration Guidelines on the 2020 issue of Shri Amarnath Yatra.
SASB has a facility in place to register for the Shri Amarnath Yatra 2020 NRI /ex-India pilgrims. This facility was specially created because this annual Yatra was carried out by a large number of devotees who live abroad.
Last Year The Shri Amanathji Shrine Board (SASB) announced online bookings for helicopter tickets start well before the Yatra start.
