Thane, Mar 25: A 21-feet high ice shiv lingam has been created in the 111-year-old Shiv Temple in Mulund in the suburbs of Mumbai.
The temple organisers claim that this is the world's tallest ice shiv lingam built yet.
Devouts from Mumbai, Thane and Navi Mumbai have flocked to the Balrajeshwar Mahadev temple to watch the shiv lingam erected three days ago despite heat outside.
Thirty thousand kg of ice was used to create the shiv lingam using 180 ice slabs weighing 166 kg.
The shiv lingam was erected in 12 hours time.
Swami Maharaj, the temple priest, said this was done to help pilgrims who are unable to trek to Amarnath to watch the famous annual shiv lingam naturally created from icicles inside the holy cave.
