Historicity of Amarnath

This is with reference to Gautam Navlakha’s article ‘State Cultivation of Amarnath Yatra’ (July 26)

I am amazed at the factual inaccuracies that the writer has made with reference to the historical context of the Amarnath yatra. He says, “What is interesting is that the translator of Rajatarangini, Aurel Stein, found no reference in 1888 in either the Rajatarangini or the Nilmata Purana to the Amarnath cave”. This is completely false.
