According to this story, once Mahadev was dancing during the night when Lord Shiva’s Ganas started chanting the word ‘Kuru-Kuru’ due to jealousy between them. Mahadev cursed him for keeping saying the word ‘Kuru-Kuru’ for a long time. After that, those eager Rudraupi turned into pigeons at the same time and got their permanent residence there.

Amarnath pigeon story
Once Mata Parvati asked Mahadev that why is it that you are immortal and what is the secret of the garland of Narmund lying around his neck. On this Mahadev did not consider it appropriate to answer Parvati’s question, that is why she avoided that matter. but due to Parvati’s insistence, accepted to tell this secret
It is said that to tell this secret, Lord Shiva needed a secluded place, searching for which he went ahead with mother Parvati, in search of the secret place, Mahadev first left his vehicle Nandi, The place where Nandi was released was called Pahalgam, from where the Amarnath Yatra begins.
Ongoing from here, Shiva separated the moon of his forehead, which is called Chandanwadi, after which Ganga Ji was left in Panchtarni and the snakes around the neck on Sheshnag, due to which this stop was named Sheshnag,
The next stop of Amarnath Yatra is Ganeshtop. It is believed that at this place Shiva had left his son Ganesha, thus after leaving behind these 5 things, Lord Shiva entered that cave with Mother Parvati. No third creature could enter this cave, so Shiva ignited the fire all around the cave, after which Mahadev started the story of that mystical mysteries of life.
It is believed that Goddess Parvati fell asleep while listening to the story, at that time two white pigeons were listening to the story, when the story ended and Lord Shiva’s attention went to Mother Parvati, he found Parvati sleeping,
Then Mahadev’s eyes fell on those two pigeons. Seeing this, Mahadev got angry, then both the pigeons came to Mahadev and said that we have heard your immortal story, if you kill us then your story will become false.
