#Amarnath temple is a cave temple located in Jammu and Kashmir. It is about 75 ft high and at least 80 ft deep, with its outer mouth measuring about 40 yards across. It remains under the snow throughout the year except during the summer months of June and July when the snow melts enough to make it accessible. This is the only time when devotees make the annual pilgrimage to Amarnath Yatra.
