Isha Dhyanalingam

The Dhyanalinga is a Yogic temple located 30km (19mins) from Coimbatore, India. The temple was consecrated by Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev, a yogi and mystic.

The temple is consecrated using prana prathista and is dedicated for meditation. Silence is maintained inside the temple. Dhyana in the Sanskrit language, means meditation and linga means form. Dhyanalinga is claimed by the owners of the temple to be a powerful and unique energy form created from the distilled essence of yogic sciences and the first of its kind to be completed in over 2,000 years.The Dhyanalinga Yogic Temple offers a meditative space that does not ascribe to any particular faith or belief system.

Architecture

A large ellipsoidal dome covers the sanctum sanctorum. The dome was constructed using only bricks and cement stabilized mud mortar without, steel or concrete.

The dome is 76ft (23.2 m) in diameter and 33ft (10.1 m) in height. The lingam is 13ft (4 m) in height made of high density black granite.

The Sarva Dharma Sthamba, located at the front entrance, functions as an icon of singularity, with the sculptural reliefs and symbols of Hinduism, Islam, Christianity, Jainism, Taoism, Zoroastrianism, Judaism, Buddhism, and Shinto inscribed as a universal welcome.

Theerthakund

A subterranean tank located 35ft (10.7 m) below holds a lingam immersed in water. Followers claim that the lingam is made of solidified and 99.8% purified mercury. The mercury is said to have been solidified at room temperature. Mercury has a Freezing point of −38.83°C at atmospheric pressure, but ancient Indian alchemy claims to have techniques to do so. These methods are said to have been used by yogis to solidify the lingam at room temperature.People can take a dip in this water before they go to the Dhyanalinga temple. A semi-circular brick vault covers this tank, the inner sides of which have murals in pure natural dyes with its theme depicting a Maha Kumbha Mela scene.
