Tallest Shivling in India - Naturally Formed

It is believed that tallest naturally formed Shivling in India is located at the SidheshwarnathTemple at Lower Subansiri District in Arunachal Pradesh in India. The Holy Shivling has a height of 25 feet and circumference of 22 feet. The Shivling stands in a forest area and is around 4 km from Hapoli town at Ziro. The district headquarters Ziro is around 147 km from Itanagar, the capital of Arunachal Pradesh.
The Tallest Shivling was accidentally found in the Shravan month in 2004. Shravan is a holy month dedicated to Shiva.

Apart from the Shivling, there is also a murti of Goddess Parvati and Ganesha.
The amazing fact is that there is constant flow of water at the base of Shivling, which many believe is Ganga.

Freedom is union with the deathless – Gita Teachings

Freedom is union with the deathless; the Self is the essence of all things; its creative power, called action causes the whole world to be.
You are only to perform your duty without an eye on their fruits.
A man must elevate himself by his own mind, not degrade himself. The mind is friend of the conditioned soul, and his enemy as well.
When a man finds delight within himself and feels inner joy and contentment in himself, there is nothing more to be done. Bhagavad Gita
