Shiva Linga in Ziro, Arunachal Pradesh, India. This Shiva Linga is 20 minutes drive from Hapoli which is approximately 4 kilometers away from Hapoli town and it is easily accessible from Hapoli town. A number of taxis are available in the town. This Shiva Linga is 24 feet in height and it happens to be the tallest natural Shiva Linga in the world as of now. On the way to Shiva Linga one can view the mesmerizing view of Ziro Valley and during the paddy season which is during the end of September the place looks even eye-catching since the valley is covered by rice paddies. To reach Shiva Linga one needs to walk down from the road and as soon as you reach one can take a rest in a rest area. Shiva Linga is a temple of Sidheshwar Nath and most know as Sidheshwar Nath Temple and it is in the forest of Kardo. In Sidheshwar Nath Temple people can also see the image of Goddess Parvati and Lord Ganesha with trunk turning leftward and it is also believed that the goddess of water the Ganga lives there with Lord Shiva. Hence we can see the clear water constantly flowing from the base of Lingam. This miraculous Shiva Linga in the Kardo Forest was discovered by Mr. Prem Subha while he was cutting a tree during the holy month of Saravana. The Shiva Linga is 24 feet tall in height and 22 feet wide in length. It is believed that the tree was on the verge of falling. Fortunately, nothing happened to the lingam, and the tree falls a few kilometers away. Suddenly something stuck in his mind and realized that it was not a mere stone. It stood clearly visible which appealed him to believe it as Shiva Lingam. People can visit Shiva Linga throughout the year; it is also one of the holy sites. Many travelers and the people interested in trekking go for trekking which usually starts from Shiva Linga and people after seeking the blessings from Lord Shiva they start trekking.
