There is a place in Karnataka where thousands of Shivalings appear from of Shalmala river bed after the fall in water level. Though, it might sound strange, it is true.
The place is called Sahasralinga located in the district of Uttara Kannada of Karnataka.
These shivlings were reportedly built under the patronage of Sadashivaraya (who was also called the King of Sirsi), of the Vijayanagar Kingdom during 1678-1718.
Local said that the Sahasralinga was ordered to be created by the king based on a belief that doing so might help beget an heir to his kingdom.
Sahasralinga is one of the most beautiful places in the region and is thought to represent not only divine power but positive energy as well. This attracts a huge number of tourists.
