Hi, While other Hindu Gods are worshiped in the face form, why is Shiva worshiped in Linga form?

Shiva is in form for the seekers in beginning. As you advance in the spiritual journey you will come to know that real Shiva is formless and prevailing every where.

To perform physical pooja to formless is not possible ( Pooja is our one of the way to express the gratuity and surrender to supreme being in any form).

After bigbang explosion during the nature creation, the entire nature with five elements is expanding from the source of explosion and the total universe will be looked like the shape of a linga. As shiva is formless so Rushis has started to do pooja of formless shiva in the form of Shiva Linga or ovel shape.

When you put some water on Siva Linga with full of devotion and surrender you will get a feeling in right side of your physical heart, because this is the place of HRIDAY and it is the center of Universe meaning..... doing pooja to Shiva Linga is nothing but doing pooja to self or Atma Linga

You just keep asking this question inside yourself, you will get lot of possible answers from inside in various ways only thing is you need to put some importance and give value to the things happening around you and be always careful to recognize the messages are been sending to you in order to help you grow wise.

Just keep trying, until you get all answers and the mind will have nothing to speak, then mind will like silence more, as mind becoming calm it will become strong and one fine moment TRUTH will be revealed.
Supreme Being, Shiva, Parmathma, Prabramha, any name you call, ( is one, gender less, unlimited power prevailing every where....) giving chances/opportunities for us to realize true self every second in one or other manner, we are just ignoring because we are living for other purpose rather than to find the truth.

So Just Keep Trying, you will find. If you are serious and sincere, every question you get has its own purpose to help you in big way
