Good post.

no body of the world know about the first idol of set up by Boohaar... i.e. boohaar first build a shiva lingam... which is still located in coimbatore...

The shiva lingam is 9 feet tall... took 10 years to complete. 1 year 1 feet... 9 years for 9 feet. 1 year for the navaphasanam poison to go and convert into medicine..

Its really hard to see Lord SiddaLingaeeswhar on Google... in Vallelore,coimbatore.
