Shivlilng

  

 

 

 

 

 

Shivling is a mountain at tapovan in the Gangotri Group of peaks in the western Garhwal Himalaya, near the snout of the Gangotri Glacier. It lies in the northern Indian state of Uttarakhand, 6 kilometres (4 mi) south of the Hindu holy site of Gaumukh. Its name refers to its status as a sacred symbol -Shiva Linga. It was called "Matterhorn Peak" by early European visitors because of its similarity in appearance to that Alpine peak.

 

 

The word Shivling denotes the "Shivling" - the symbol of Lord Shiva. Mt. Shivling is among the most stunning peaks of Garhwal, Uttarakhand of India. Appearing as a single pyramid when seen from Gaumukh, Shivling is actually a twin-summitted mountain, with the northeast summit being slightly higher than the southwest summit, 6,501 m (21,329 ft). The mountain is well defined by steep rock faces on all sides; besides the west flank which is moderate enough slope for snow accumulation.  Between Gaumukh and Shivling lies the Tapovan meadow, a popular pilgrimage site due to its inspiring view of the mountain.
