Shiva Lingam Mandir

shiva Lingan Temple

The Shiva Lingam Mandir is a traditional Shiva Lingam temple dedicated to the worship of Lord Shiva, the primordial Yogi. The worship of Shiva in the form of a Lingam is the oldest continuously practiced ritual in the world. Prior to its formal embrace with Hinduism, Lingam worship was regarded as the pinnacle ritual of devotion for Rishis and Sages who practice the art of Yoga autonomous from religious ties. The lingam is often represented alongside the yoni, a symbol of the goddess or of Shakti, female creative energy. The union of lingam and yoni represents the "indivisible two-in-oneness of male and female, the passive space and active time from which all life originates". 

 The temple is not open to the public, except by appointment, darshan on designated festival days and upon invitation. If you have an interest in meditating with us, please refer to The Emanation page or Contact page.
