Dhyanlinga Temple Tamil Nadu


Forty kilometers from the hustle and bustle of Coimbatore rise one of the lesser-known hill stations of Tamil Nadu, the Velliangiri Hills which is located at an altitude of 6000 ft and is a part of the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve. The name Velliangiri means ‘ Mountain with a Silver Line’, and the delicate curtain of mist which veils the mountain tops through most of the year gives it an ethereal and out-of-this-world quality. For the intrepid traveler, these mountains offer up the double bonanza of a luxuriant hill station with a spiritual twist. While its salubrious climate is a prime attraction for many, one can also experience the spiritual dimension that is offered here. These mountains are known as Dakshin Kailash or ‘The Kailash of the South’. Legend has it that Shiva retreated to these mountains to grieve, when he failed to reach his devotee in Kanyakumari in response to her appeal. Over the ages, these mountains have served as the abodes of many great saints and yogis.
