About Shivoham Shiva Temple
The Shivoham Shiva Temple was formerly known as the Shiv Temple. It is said to be built in 1995 after the founder of the temple, had a vision of a temple where a gigantic statue of Lord Shiva would stand tall as a towering symbol of hope, spreading faith for generations to come. The idol of Lord Shiva was created by the sculptor Kashinath. It is also believed to have been built without using a blueprint or plan or a measuring tape. The temple was consecrated by Sri Shankaracharya of Sringeri on 26 February 1995. Besides the 65-feet-tall statue of Lord Shiva, the temple is also home to a 32-feet-tall statue of Lord Ganesha, which was unveiled on 1 March 2003 by Dada J.P. Vaswani. The Shiv Temple was renamed the Shivoham Shiva Temple in 2016 when the focus of the temple shifted to help people attain self-realization and God-realization by understanding and realizing the truth of Shivoham: I am Shiva. You are Shiva. We are all Shiva.
