The Shiva Lingam was discovered miraculously in July 2014 as mentioned in the Shivapurana, which says that a tall Shiva Lingam will appear at the place, which will be called Lingalaya, according to the Sidheswar Nath Temple Committe, Ziro. The Lingam has become a great attraction centre in Ziro attracting devotees and tourists from nearby and far flung places.
