Owner description: 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.

“A Home of Peace”
Reviewed 22 March 2012

I visited with my family. the road to access is bit poor but after you reached Dyanalinga Temple its awesome place to spend your time but the product which the selling inside is bit costlier for budgetary travelers like me. but apart from that everyone should visit at least once in a while.

“A place of Silence”
Reviewed 19 March 2012

The place has now become a tourist attraction, rather than for what it was intended to earlier...... But still the hall is maintained with zero noise or even sound... gives a relax to the mind.....

“Speical if only we can temporarily shut our judgemental mind.”
Reviewed 28 January 2012

This place definitely is not made like a traditional Hindu temple. If you want to experience a conventional temple then avoid this place. Its modern in structure but has the essence of the ancient. The whole place is made of stone and superbly executed. The acoustics inside the temple are amazing and the energy is sublime for meditation. Their ritualistic prayer is an amazing experience to go through where naad (a type of sound) is the offering to the gods. You don't have to be a part of Isha foundation to experiene this ceremony. All visitors are allowed in the temple. But the ashram which is next to the temple is for the followers only.
After the temple visit one can also go to the gift shop and buy good quality rudraksh beads and organic cotton clothes and other gift items. They have a cafetaria as well which offers wholesome food and drinks.
This place is at least half a day's outing and is an hour's ride from the city. The easiest way to reach is to hire a private taxe. The drive is pretty and one can stop at some lovely old temples on the way.
