Located in the district of Poonch, Buddha Amarnath Temple stands 4,600 ft above the sea level. Its picturesque location, valleys and the gushing River Pulasti nearby, magnify the beauty of the temple. People throng this place for Amarnath Yatra and it is considered as one of the most important places of worship for Hindus. Dedicated to Lord Shiva, the temple has a shivling idol. Thousands of pilgrims, due to their immense faith in Lord Shiva, take the arduous journey of cutting across crooked paths and mountains to reach this temple, to seek the blessings of the lord. Many believe that it is sacred if pilgrims take a bath before entering the temple. Legend has it that the river flowing here has been named after Rishi Pulsata, the grandfather of demon Ravana.
