11 /11 कबूतर के पीछे पौराणिक कथाजब भगवान शिव ने माता पार्वती को कथा सुनाने के लिए अमरनाथ की गुफा में प्रवेश किया तो कालाग्नि को यह आदेश दिया कि गुफा में जो भी जीव हैं उन्हें भस्म कर दो। कालाग्नि ने ऐसा ही किया और सभी जीवों को भस्म कर दिया। लेकिन उस गुफा में कबूतर को दो अंडे रह गए। चूंकि अंडों को जीवधारी नहीं माना जाता है, इसलिए वे भस्म होने से बच गए। जब भगवान शिव ने माता पार्वती को कथा सुनाना आरंभ किया तो इन अंडों से कबूतर निकल आए और वे भी कथा सुनने लगे। इस प्रकार इन कबूतरों को साक्षात भगवान शिव और देवी पार्वती के दर्शन के समान माना गया है।
