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.

    Visiting the Adiyogi Shiva statue was our main priority on our Coimbatore trip. We visited there in the evening and returned after the light show. It was crowded and busy. There are plenty of parking areas and many local shops for drinks and foods. Unfortunately, we found that most items are very expensive including small model of Adiyogi. But the surroundings of Adiyogi are a great feeling. This location is far from Coimbatore, around 30 km, 50+ minutes drive. You can opt for local buses to reach there or arrange a taxi or cab. Overall, this was a wonderful experience.

    My visit to Marudamalai Temple was a spiritually enriching experience. Nestled amidst the lush greenery of the Western Ghats, this ancient temple exudes a serene and tranquil atmosphere.

    The temple's architecture is impressive, showcasing intricate details and vibrant colors. The sacred vibes are palpable as you ascend the steps leading to the main shrine. The panoramic views of Coimbatore from the hilltop only add to the mystique.

    The priests at Marudamalai are warm and welcoming, providing insightful explanations about the temple's history and significance. The rhythmic chants and the fragrance of incense create an ambiance that truly connects you with the divine.

    Devotees can participate in various rituals, enhancing the spiritual journey. The Arulmigu Subramanya Swamy idol, adorned with flowers and vibrant clothing, radiates a sense of power and grace.

    The temple surroundings offer peaceful spots for meditation, allowing visitors to immerse themselves in contemplation and prayer. It's a place where one can find solace and rejuvenate the soul.

    Whether you're a devotee seeking spiritual solace or a traveler interested in the cultural richness of South India, Marudamalai Temple is a must-visit destination that leaves a lasting impression of serenity and devotion.

    A trip to museum is definitely a trip to past years memories, where one spent their quality time interacting with cars of their era. A huge well maintained collection of time less cars, a rich treasure by all means. Must see for all car lovers.

    A temple very near to the city. Lord Ganesa is the presiding deity. The organizing of rituals in the temple can improve a bit.
