The Dhyanalinga is set amidst the foothills of the Velliangiri Mountains, the first of its kind to be completed in over 2000 years. This powerful meditative space does not ascribe to any particular faith or belief system nor does it require any ritual, prayer, or worship. In June 1999, Dhyanalinga was consecrated by Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev, a realized master, mystic and yogi, after three years of intense process of prana prathista (process of energizing an object using one's own life energies). Measuring 13' 9", Dhyanalinga is the largest mercury-based live linga in the world. All the aspects of life are enshrined in the form of seven chakras, energized to the very peak and locked to prevent dissipation over time. It is expected that the energies of the Dhyanalinga will not suffer dissipation for at least 5000 years. THEERTAKUNDS The Dhyanalinga features two Theerthakunds, which are subterranean tanks with solidified mercury lingas immersed in water, built as preparatory tools to enhance one's spiritual receptivity before entering the Dhyanalinga. The Theerthakunds, are very powerful by themselves. It straightens out the energy or the pranic imbalances in a person, which leads to physical and mental well-being. Above all, it creates a tremendous receptivity to imbibe the energies of Dhyanalinga. They are open for Gents and Ladies from 7:30AM to 8:00PM NADHA ARADHANA An offering of sound to the Dhyanalinga, Nadha Aradhana is an etheric blend of vocals, singing bowls, drums and various other instruments amplified within the reverberating Dome, transporting one into the timeless space of the Dhyanalinga. The offering takes place twice a day, from 11:50 am to 12:10 pm and from 5:50 pm to 6:10 pm. These times are recognized as special sandhya kalas for meditators. A sandhya kala is a phase when nature undergoes certain transitions and makes a person more receptive to inner possibilities. AUMKAR MEDITATION Visitors to the Dhyanalinga can further deepen their experience by attending this daily introduction to the timeless and powerful mantra "Aum." This meditation is known to have transcendental qualities. It can bring peace and balance to one's system, and is known to relieve people from numerous physical and mental ailments when practiced regularly. Aumkar meditation is offered daily from 12:30 pm to 1:00 pm.

Very devotional place. Very quite. Dhiyanalingam very very fascinating. I have not been into so much devotion or peace of mind like this. Now it's like a tourist spot. Lot of people get in here. Can find lots of snakes here just wandering freely but not hurting any one

Even if one does not go to Dhyanalinga Temple with any preconceived notions based on reviews like the one I am sharing, it is absolutely all right as the place has its own charm and character to offer to each visitor that affects him or her differently.

If you are in Coimbatore this temple should be on your list of places to visit. It takes about 1 hour by car, it's best to visit early morning to enjoy before the crowds arrive. There is a wonderful feeling of peace.

Isha Yoga Centre is unique, different then other "adhyatmic" places. Not only the ambience is unique, the design and architecture is also inspirational. Certainly worth a visit even for non-believers.

Dhyanalinga Temple at Isha foundation gives a totally different experience. The Shiva and Shiva Linga statues are very unique and modern. The artifitial falls, and the Shiva Statue at the entrance and Shivalingam at Dhyanalinga Temple are very rare and examples of modern architecture
