Pahalgam attracts thousands of pilgrims in summer July - August as Amarnath Yatra starts from here at Chandanwari. Devotees visit the Amarnath cave every year for getting a pious glimpse of Lingam of Lord Shiva which is believed to be formed naturally from ice. It is believed that Lord Shiva explained Parvati the secret of life called 'Amar Katha' at Amarnath cave. For that, he left his bull Nandi at Pahalgam, at Chandanwari he left Moon taking it out of his hair, at the bank of Sheshnag he left his snake. He also left his son Ganesha at the Mahagunas Parvat and at Panjtarni he left behind all the five elements that is air, water, earth, sky and fire which are believed to be the building blocks of human beings.
