#NorthEast is not a far flung branch of the tree of Bharat but a place holding its roots. Mata #Tripura Sundari has grand temples all the way in south India. Kamakhya Devi (Assam) & Nartiang Durga (Meghalaya) are other ‘Shakti Peeth’s in NE. More interesting facts in this thread
Unakoti (#Tripura) is an >1000 yr old site with amazing carvings by an unknown sculptor. There is a 30 ft. high carving of Lord Shiva (Unikotiswara Kal Bhairava) & gigantic figures of Ganesha, Nandi and Durga on a lion

Sri Surya Pahar (Assam) is a site with numerous Shiva linga carvings - belief is that 99999 Shiva Lingas were engraved by Vyasa in order to build a 2nd Kashi (where there were 100000 Lingas)

Kirateshwar Mahadev Temple (Sikkim) - believed to be the place where Shiva appeared before Arjuna pleased with his hard penance and blessed him with success in the Mahabharat war. A Shiva linga was discovered at the spot.

An ancient 25 ft tall Shiva lingam (Siddheshwar Nath) was discovered in 2004 in Kardo forest (Ziro) in Arunachal Pradesh along with images of Goddess Parvati and Lord Ganesha. Clean water is said to flow at the foot of the linga.


And another one. Stunning giant carvings at Chabimura / Devtamura, #Tripura of Ganesha, Durga & others

Discovered through #AHAF, unfortunate lack of other good documentaries. See:
