Lord Shiva

Temple History

The famous Dhyanalinga temple is situated at the foothills of the Velliangiri Mountains. Dhyanalinga temple is constructed and developed by Shri Sadhguru's.

The Sacred land of India has been witness to the lives of countless siddhas, seers, saints, sages, and enlightened beings. The Dhyanalinga, situated in Coimbatore, India, is very much a part of this glorious tradition.

Dhyanalinga is the distilled essence of yogic science. It does not ascribe to any particular belief or faith. It does not require any pooja or worship. Just sitting silently for few minutes within the sphere of Dhyanalinga is enough to make even those unaware of meditation experience a state of deep meditativeness and feel the divine energy that overflows from this glorious form.

Dhyanalinga was consecrated by Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev, a realized master, mystic and yogi, after three years of intense process of prana prathista. Measuring 13' 9", Dhyanalinga is the largest mercury based live linga in the world. In the metaphysical sense, Dhyanalinga is a guru, an energy center of tremendous proportions. All the aspects of life are enshrined in the form of seven chakras energized to the very peak and locked. A doorway to enlightenment and spiritual liberation, Dhyanalinga offers a sadhaka the opportunity to perform sadhana in utmost intimacy with a live guru, - an opportunity traditionally available only to a select few.

Situated at the foothills of the Velliangiri Mountains, Dhyanalinga is a colossal entity of eternal vibrations. The earth colors, the natural granite, and the fusion of irregular surfaces and shapes creates an ethereal ambiance and an apt atmosphere to receive the grace of the Dhyanalinga.

The elliptical dome that houses the Dhyanalinga is 72’ and 4” feet in diameter and 33 feet high. It was built without the use of any steel, cement, or concrete but with brick and mud mortar stabilized with lime, sand, alum and herbal additives. It's the only structure of its kind.
