Red Mountain God

Red Mountain God After the contest as to which of the 3 gods was greatest: Vishnu then requested Siva to manifest in a form that was less dazzling to the eyes so that devotees through the ages could have darshan of his form. Siva obliged by condensing himself into the mountain of Arunachala. Thus, for devotees of Arunachala, the mountain is not merely a symbol of Siva or the place where he resides, it is Siva himself, manifesting in a physical form. Cited from Website: Arunachala Saints There is a Red Mountain God Shrine in Khao Sam Lan National Park in Thailand.
