Kashmir Smast : The Maha Guha (Great Cave) of Lord Shiva !

List members , would you believe it - this place is actually referred to in some shlokas (verses) of the prehistoric Rig Veda text itself ! This mountain area was called Mujavant in the Vedas and it is believed - in that era the legendary Soma plant used to grow in that area...Soma was a special brew the Vedic seers used to prepare - it was supposed to have properties like "Amrita" , or nectar .

**The other special thing about this prehistoric site is that it is probably the oldest Shaivite site (for worship of Lord Shiva) , found anywhere in the Indian subcontinent !
