Find your balance at Dhyanalinga, a consecrated Yogic temple dedicated to meditation, but which does not adhere to any single faith or belief system. True to this unique school of thought, the Sarva Dharma Sthamba at the front door symbolizes unity and displays icons of Hinduism, Christianity, Taoism, and more. People visit to meditate in peace, but also to look for the "theerthakund," a subterranean tank with a lingam made of solidified mercury submersed in the water. Visitors are welcome to take a dip in the water before meditating. If you enter the domed temple, keep in mind that silence must be maintained at all times.

It is a wonderful place to sit and meditate. The atmosphere is very conducive to higher states. Due to the high flow of people and to avoid interruption during meditation, every 15min a bell rings... more »
The perfect place for meditating in silence. The overall ambience and the structural brilliance of the place is simply amazing. more »
It was interesting experience. But if you want to spend in there more time than just couple hours, I recommend to bring some mat to sit on with you. Sitting on the stony floor becomes quite painful after some time and even if you manage to leave your body, there is a painful "welcome back" when you're done :-) Note that phones and cameras are forbidden in the entire complex. On the other hand, I love the surrounding nature. It would be great if they could make the adjacent palm forest accessible to the people, so they can connect with nature in a more natural way, than just through the dome.
In the first visit You may not feel anything. But this place will definitely transform You in a big way. My Life is completely changed. It took 2 years for Me as I was not very serious.
