The sacred and holy book Rig Veda describes Lord Shiva as the most distinguished, demolisher and indigent living god. Lord Shiva is defined as great yogi and his presence is chanted in many mantras. Myths are that once Lord Shiva was narrating the path to recreation to Mata Parvati and unknown to them a pair of mating doves pried their conversation and learnt this secret. Knowing the secret of recreation the pair of doves are said to reborn again and again and this myth has evolved Amarnath cave as an eternal place.
