As per religious beliefs, vision of the ice Shivalinga in Amarnath cave bestows 10 times the merit gained by paying obeisance to Shivlinga in Kashi, 100 times the merit gained by paying obeisance in Prayag and 1000 times the merit obtained by paying obeisance in Naimisharanya. That is why even today millions of Hindus go on a pilgrimage to Amarnath with wholehearted devotion.
In the 10th century, King Rajendravarman II ruled Yashodharpura. He gave away a huge piece of land to his 2 ministers who established a town named ‘Ishwarpur’ there. It is now known as Phnom Dei village, Cambodia. In the center of the town they built a temple ‘Tribhuvan Maheshwar’ or ‘Banteay Srei’.
