Back in 1996, when a rumour of a miracle led millions of Hindus in India to believe that idols of Ganesha were drinking milk, a temple on a hilltop in a small town of Arunachal Pradesh too witnessed an overnight rush of devotees.
Many in the picturesque town of Ziro in Lower Subansiri district rushed to witness the miracle and started claiming that Ganesha accepted their offering. Twenty-six-year-old Nada Buda too lined up outside the temple to witness the miracle.
A little less than a decade later, Nada stumbled upon another miracle unfolding right in front of his eyes, on a tract of forest land owned by his family – a 25-foot-tall Shivling.
The site at Kardo village in Ziro valley has now been turned into Sidheshwar Nath Temple with the tallest naturally formed Shivling in the world, as claimed by the committee looking after the temple.
