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.

See you will find all kind of reviews about Dhyanlinga/Isha yoga centre -good reviews ,bad reviews..I very recently visited the Isha yoga centre and all i can conclude is that it all depends on your perception.I didn't join any yoga programs, just stayed there for 3 nights,4 days observing and practicing meditation on my own and I can very easily say that I felt wonderful over there.Though there was nothing magical about it but the whole ambiance is such that you just enjoy doing meditation there and eventually feel relaxed.

Worthy one hour drive from city centre. Must visit place after the new addition "adhiyogi" bust , the biggest face on earth , inauguration of which was graced by shri.Modi ji.
Good campus with imposing statues. Meditation in one of the bays around the mighty Dyanalinga is an experience to treasure. U will enjoy a dip in the pond and walk around the campus. Reach there by four pm and adhiyogi at sunset is amazing. U could stop at the 1000 year old ( patteshwarar) Shiva temple in perur on your way back ( before 8 preferably).

The temple is an architectural marvel. You don't need to be spiritual or religious to experience the energy of this place. Just sit with your eyes closed and you'll feel it.

Personally I was disappointed- as I did not feel- all that has been described about its overwhelming effects . I found it difficult to even try and concentrate, as I felt that the number of people inside were too large for the space within the temple, and we were literally on top of each other. It also was a very controlled experience- which definitely did not help me to be with my thoughts. I think I was disappointed also because of my expectations from all that has been said about it. I also found it odd that -time and again we were told it is a place for all major (9 of them) religions- but then what was the Linga for, as the centre piece of the temple. Just call it a Hindu Temple and a place of worship and be done with it.
