Indian Soldier guarding Amarnath Cave - Amarnath Yatra (pilgrimage) - Kashmir

Security is very high (multiple body searches and metal detectors), and they do not allow any camera or cellphone in the cave, so it is impossible to take photos of the holy ice stalagmite (Shiva lingam).­ But you can see many older photos of the Amarnath Shiva Lingam on the web.­

Because I had expensive camera equipment that I did not want to leave behind, I had to negotiate with the military commander, and they finally allowed me to keep the camera in the cave after I left them the batteries.­
