INTRODUCTION

Such oddities galore seemed racing one after another, as it were, flashing across my mind demanded incorporation. Look at the extra-ordinary tradition of installing eight lingas - Ashtasambhu lingas on one and the same panavatta, the central one big in size and the other satellite lingas smaller Vide No. 40. Another! A Sivalinga with a braid Vide No.85 and at another place a Sivalinga installed in a topless doorless temple, but has huge number of adorers Vide No.82.  One more awesome feature of the existence of 108 temples each with a linga in one and the same campus, arranged in two concentric circles, the outer one consisting of 66 temples with lingas of two different colours --  black and white installed alternately in a masterly way, whereas in the inner circle there are 42 temples enshrining black lingas one each.  To crown all as it were, the Sivalingas are installed and ardently worshipped with periodical festivals not in Sivaalayas but in Jain Mandirs Vide No.51.  An outstanding marvel that can far surpass any unique feature of all time apprebation.  All these, I felt merit inclusion, and I did. So the volume grew bulkier.  Would the introduction lag behind?
