The legend about the importance of Amarnath ji cave is chosen by Bhole Shankar for narrating the secrets of immortality and creation of Universe to Maa Parvati Ji. The story goes like this. Centuries ago Maa Parvati Shiv Ji to let her know why and when he started wearing the beads of heads (Mund Mala). Bhole Shankar replied when ever you are born I add one more head in my beads. Maa Parvati said, " My Lord, my body is destroyed every time and I die again and again, but you are immortal. Please let me know the secret of this. " Bhole Shankar replied that it is due to Amar Katha".

When to take up Yatra: The Amarnath Yatra is organized every year and the registration is done by the J&K Govt. during the month of Sharavan (July and August) the dates however, vary every year looking at the weather conditions and according to Purnima (Raksha Bandhan) in the month of Sharavan ( Vikrama Samwat).
