One of The Tallest Shivlinga at Baba Bhusandeswar Temple in Odisha

One of The Tallest Shivlinga in the world can be seen at Baba Bhusandeswar Temple which is located at Bhogarai village of Balasore district, Odisha in India

The 12 feet long and 14 feet wide lingam is carved out on a black granite and only half of the lingam is visible.

The other half the Shivaling remains buried for years. This lingam has three parts. While the middle portion of the lingam is octagonal in shape, about 12 feet in diameter and nearly four feet in height, the Lingam slightly leans towards the right side.

As per the mythology, during the tretaya yuga, the Demon King Ravana was blessed by Lord Shiva and he gifted this Shiva Lingam to him while warning him  not to place the Lingam anywhere. 

When Ravana was on his way with Lingam on his Pushpak vimana, the Gods were disappointed and thought to seize the power of Ravana, which he brought from Lord Shiva. Eventually, Ravana felt desperate too and planted this Lingam at this place. He tried to lift again but failed because it was heavy.
