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.

If you happen to find yourself in Coimbatore or are traveling to the Isha Foundation. A stop at the infamous Dhyanalinga Temple is a must for any human being, religious beliefs not matter. This is a place of energy and must be experienced. Especially, the evening offering of sound.

this center is very much dedicated to lord shiva founded by satguru
its very beautifully built....n the feeling of visiting it was refreshing......
upon arriving .....i was welcomed by the largest lord shiva statue in the world.
the main highlight in this center were the large lingam & the holy bath.

after a brief meditation session at the large lingam & holy bath......i was pretty much relaxed n felt 'reborn' its like spending thousands in a luxury resort with all the spas & massage.....it was honestly tht GREAT!!!
its a must visit destination if you happened to be around the area.

I will planned my trip here again!!

Dhyanalinga Temple located Velliangiri Foothills, Ishana Vihar Post, Just 29 Kms from Coimbatore city.
Connectivity to this temple by road, Its better if you have your own vehicle.
Temple around mountains and deep forest, its something we feel heaven on earth.
Inside temple premises Camera & Mobile not allowed and made separate counter their you can drop your valuable things.
Surya Kund & Chandra Kund - (Not Compulsory) For men Surya Kund and the women in the Chandra Kund.The procedure was to shower first in nearby wash rooms and then enter the Kund for three dips before proceeding to the Dhyanalinga for meditation.
Before entering to Dhyanalinga - Outside volunteers will guide you and they also show the video clips. (must watch video clips).
Batch wise batch they will allow into the temple, every 15 mins rotation will be their,
Once you enter the temple inside we feel positive vibration and inner peace.

This is not an urban legend. There are some places on earth which, have certain vibrations, a kind of electricity which suddenly and unexpectedly CONNECTS you to your inner self; or at least reminds you gently from within, that there is something out there and in here, over and above the mundane physical/material. I have visited some places like that, a good number of them being ancient Hindu temples, many of them in South India.
This is one of them, though the physical infrastructure is modern and newly constructed, you can definitely feel the ancient, deep rumbling within yourself when you enter the huge domed structure and sit in one of the quiet alcoves. Sit with your mind blank, and let whatever thoughts that want to come in, come. The dome itself is an architectural marvel, made of bricks with no metal used anywhere in the construction. The huge Dhyanalinga is awe-inspiring and commands silence and respect. Many od the tourists who trail in (and thousads do, every day) initially do not appreciate these things and stare and sometimes chatter, but are generally seen to subside at the awe and grandeur of the place. The massive snake around the Linga and the pool festooned with fresh flowers add to the beauty and mystery. Do not forget to take a dip in the ritual bathing pool attached to the temple.
Come here if you want a seriously different experience outside the pale of the ordinary tourist trip. And catch the awesome Adiyogi sculpture on the way out. Go with some time to spend....
