Fallus of Shiva

North-India Uttaranchal - Rishikesh - Ram Jhula

A daily ritual, washing Shiva's lingam.
In a country where the fallus is worshipped as symbol of Shiva, the Creator,
Shakti, Parvati or Lakshmi have to serve him as wife,
it is not surprising that the imported Hinduism in the 4th century is logically also the source of repressing women in India,
having no other rights then to serve.
Seen on the way to Neelkanth.
