Bangalore. India. It's difficult to appreciate the size of the statue.

This is a picture of the Hindu Temple Shiv Mandir in Bangalore, India -- a statue of Lord Shiva. Shiva is The Lord of destruction in Hinduism but also possesses the typical Hindu beliefs; some of which, are close to my heart.

This gives a very cool perspective of how Brahma is the creator god and at the center of all the gods. It shows all the major and minors gods and goddesses from Hinduism.

Kedar Lingam-Kedarnath is the biggest of the temples and the most popular. The Shiva Lingam (sign of Shiva) here is a natural rock in the shape of a buffalo’s hump. Rudranath is the place where his face appeared, Madmaheswar is where his navel is said to have fallen, his arms appeared at Tunganath and his tresses at Kalpeshwar.

Kedarnath the Northernmost of the Jyotirlingas is Uttarakhandmarker in marker. Kedarnath, nestled in the snow-clad Himalayasmarker, is an ancient shrine, rich in legend and tradition.
