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.

“Extremely Energising and Enriching”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2012

I am fortunate to have been introduced to Dhyanalinga Temple at the Isha Centre near Coimbatore. Definitely a very energising place to meditate and discover oneself. The other attractions within this complex are Linga Bhairavi temple and Theerthakund.

Isha centre also offers a variety of yoga and meditation programmes.The volunteers are very committed, compassionate and helpful.There is a range of accommodation available at the centre for overnight visits and extended stays. Its about an hour and a half drive from Coimbatore city. Would definitely recommend everyone to visit this place and have a very positive and enriching experience.

“the whole universe existes in this temple!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2012

As an isha yoga meditator, i went to the india center in Coimbatore for the first time in february in order to attend 2 yoga events...The whole place is just amazing and the volonteers there are very friendly, helpful and compassionned! About the Dhyanalinga temple, i can't find the right words to describe the huge energy in this place...i used to sit for like 1 or 2 hours and didn't feel the time passing....it is an incredibale experience just sitting there regardless you are a meditator or not! I think every visitor will be touched by at least a glimpse of spirituality in the Dyanalinga temple! Don't miss the vanashri tree outside the temple which is an incarnation of the feminine energy!! Best time for visit between 11h45-12h15 and 16h45-17h15 and avoid visits during holidays it is really crouded so you might miss the beauty of the silence in the place...

“A Home of Peace”
4 of 5 bubbles 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”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.....
