Over 2.25 lakh pilgrims have reached the shrine located at 3,888 metres above sea-level since the 40-day yatra started on June 29.

It will end on August 7 on Shravan Purnima coinciding with the Raksha Bandhan festival.

The cave shrine houses an ice stalagmite structure that waxes and wanes with the size of the visible moon. Devotees believe the ice stalagmite structure symbolises mythical powers of Lord Shiva.
