SAHASRALINGA TEMPLE, SALEM
THIS is a very new temple built on a small hillock by the vinayaka mission istitutions. The uniqness of this temple is that 1001 shivlings have been concrecated. Many of them are by donors and philontropists.
It houses a very big shivlinga,(next only to the brihadeshwara temple in Tanjavur in size.) and also has Sri RajaRajeshwari temple, which itself is very attractive and mind catching.
Other temples in the vincinity are sri Vishnu, Ganapathi, Hanuman etc.
With all these inside, you can just guess how big this complex is.
