Yesterday was Maha Shivaratri. A major festival across India when devotees worship Lord Shiva who is one of Trinity of Gods in Hindu pantheon.
We have been fortunate to see two of the tallest Shiva statues in the world. Both Soaring into the sky. One on the sea front with amazing backdrop of Arabian sea in Murudeshwar in Karnataka, South India. This happens to be the second tallest Shiva statue in the world.
The other one we saw when we went to Sikkim recently in North East India. We visited Siddeshwar dham in Namchi. Here we saw colossal statue Lord Shiva with a backdrop of Himalayas. (It was foggy when we were there) Possibly the third tallest statue in the world.
