Vellingiri Hill Temple
Reviewed April 4, 2018

The Velliangiri foothills is about 1 km from Isha Yoga Center and not many visit this foothill Poondi temple. This is open only up to 12 noon or so. Surrounded by hills this foothill temple is the place to start climb on Velliangiri hills which is limited to certain months , from what we heard. The foothill temple consists of a Rasi temple which was amazing to us. Navadhnaya and til lamp are available to offer for the Rasi gods all around the pillar. Nice piece of sculpture not to be missed. One can first finish visiting here before going to Isha Center which has longer visiting hours.

Trek to the top to rediscover the inner self and the beauty of nature
Dont carry any plastic or dispose any plastic there.

Vellingiri Hills (famous Isha Foundation is at the foot hills) is called Southern Kailash. On Shivratri more than one lakh (10 million) devotees went up this steep hill, amidst wild forests, on prior permission (Feb 1 to May 31: TN Forest Dept Permission). It is in 6000 plus feet height and Shiva is on a simple cave, 6 hill tops with one having a natural water source and it is a very hard task. Beyond permitted days, not allowed to go due to the dangers of the forest, windy season atop a hill with no grip and other issues. Very few photos are available as photographing Deity is considered offensive. Here are ones from local newspaper “ Dinamalar” page 4 of Coimbatore edition (16 Feb 2018)
