The Jyotirlinga Temples in India and Fibonacci Sequence

Received as a forward. I don’t believe in such things but some may find it interesting, hence posting here:

Did you know: The Jyotirlinga temples in India, are dedicated to Lord Shiva and there’s a golden rule of numbers which is a universal theorem that can be linked to the position of the Jyotirlinga temples.

The Fibonacci Series or Fibonacci Pattern. The same genius mathematical pattern popularized by the Renaissance artist of Italy. Most of us know about his all time beauty “Mona Lisa”, currently in Musee du Louvre or the Louvre Museum in Paris since 1797. But only a certain amount of the global population are familiar with “Vitruvian Man”, the geometrical brilliance. For those who are still curious about knowing What a Fibonacci Sequence is? Fibonacci sequence is that each number after the second 1 is equal to the sum of the two previous numbers. So 1+1 = 2, 1+2 = 3, 2+3 = 5, 3+5 = 8, 5+8 =13, 8+13 = 21 and so on.

It is believed that at these temples Lord Shiva appeared as a column of fire or the lingam of light.
Dwadasa Jyotirlinga Stotra says there are 12 such Jyotirlingams in India, and that every devotee of Shiva must visit these temples. But what piques my curiosity is the progressive spiral shape around which these temples are situated.

If you draw a line over the Jyotirlinga temples on India’s map then the final result is the shape of a conch shell or the Fibonacci pattern. Fibonacci pattern is a nature’s secret code, they say.
