you to throughout length and breadth of India, you see Siva is
worshipped in the linga form only, perhaps to the exception of a
very few places where His most popular Nataraja form is worshipped
as found in the famous temple at Chidambaram, and Ardhanareeswara
for at some places like Tiruchengodu near Salem, Tamil Nadu etc.,
And perhaps the only place at Gudimallam near Tirupathi, Andhra
pradesh, where worship is offered to the image of the genital form
of male reproductive organ.
