Adiyogi - आदियोगी

Key Highlights

◉ The Guinness World Records as the *Largest Bust Sculpture* in the world.
◉ 112ft high 82ft wide steel statue of Lord Shiva .

Adiyogi refers to (The First Yogi) or Shankar as the first yogi. One of the biggest statues of Bhagwan Shiva at the very first glance of the statue you just forget everything. It was established to inspire people towards inner well-being through yoga. It is located at the Isha Yoga Center. The 112 ft height Shiva Statue is made of steel. It symbolizes the 112 possibilities to attain moksha (liberation) that are mentioned in yogic culture, and also the 112 chakras in the human system.

As per Sadhguru, This is not a deity, this is not a temple of some kind, this is an iconic inspiration for people.

It is also the venue of a light and sound show on Shiva as a yogi. The 3D laser show, narrating the story of Adiyogi and how the science of yoga was given to human beings. It is a 14 minute light and sound show, projected upon the Adiyogi Statue. A linga called Yogeshwar Linga was consecrated and placed in front of the statue. The Indian Ministry of Tourism has included the statue in its official Incredible India campaign.

A must-visit place situated amidst nature, it’s slightly secluded. Surrounded by huge mountains, it’s built on very large ground. Enough space to sit and walk around. Very peaceful. An easy way to find bliss in the serene atmosphere. Must be like heaven during rains! From here you can take an electric vehicle or a bullock cart to reach the entrance or you can enjoy a short walk. The good thing about this place is it’s very peaceful and absolutely super clean.
