I had train on 25/2/23 from panvel to coimbatore on 3:25pm . I reached coimbatore next day on 26/2/23..train covers distance in upto 24-25 hrs..as the train was late we reached on 5 pm in coimbatore..we checked into the "Decostal backpackers" It costs only 700 rs for 2 nights ..as I booked it from yatra.com
We freshen up and left the Decostal and went to 'Ukkadam-Valankulum lake'..Lake was very crowdy as it was Sunday..there was boating and some other rides were there but as we reached late ..we didn't get to do it..we sat there for half hr and went to "Arulmigu Koniamman Temple" which was 1.6km from lake and was in route to Decostal so we covered it by walking..in route we had to one another temple ..and then we reached to Arulmigu temple ..that was also crowdy and a long queue one for a tree and other for God ..In first queue ,people are watering that tree with turmeric water and taking blessings and because we were late we took blessings away from the god and not went to that long queue..Then we return back to Decostal ,in route we saw a stall of idli ,dosa and had dinner there and went to Decostal and had rest.
We woke up early in the morning and went to Isha yoga center from Gandhipuram bus stop by bus no 14D.it took around 1 hr to reach Isha foundation..we reached there on around 7:15 am and had coffee in Isha Canteen after that ,went to see mesmerizing statue of lord Shiva ..there was peace ,there was purity there was a pure ,positive vibe that can't be put into words ,I just lost in that place, in the thought of Shiva , Adiyogi,first Yogi,first Guru as said by Sadguru..The statue was 112 ft and built by Sadguru..after that view we went to Isha Yoga center were camera is not allowed,we deposited all our belongings and went inside
First we saw" surykunda" ,were men's are supposed to had a dip and then we went inside the Isha centre were we got to see "Ling bhairavi mandir "were a wedding was happening on blessings of ling bhairavi ,we took blessings and then went for "Dhyanling" and had mediation for 15 min ..after that a bell was ringed and then all are supposed to go outside the bell was set for 15 min for each slot ..and then after we had dip inside a "chandrakund"were women's are supposed to go ..after all the peaceful and into the vibes of great people we left that place and waiting outside the Isha centre for bus meanwhile we had a coconut water and had some chat with that shopkeeper and we asked him as he knows Hindi well and others not ..we asked the reason for it ..as because he once had in Mumbai ,he knows Hindi well but others not for that he replied as" because our CM don't like Hindi"
And then we took bus 14D and went to Gandhipuram bus stop from were we catch up bus for "Marudhamalai temple"bus no 70 ..we reached there and from marudhamalai bus stop there is another bus for temple we reached marudhamalai and had blessings and Prasad which is like a sour,sweet,spicy khichdi ..which is mouthwatering.. and after that we left the temple and went to Decostal by same bus and we wanted to attend night show in Isha but as bus came so late we drop the plan and went in search of authentic south Indian food were we get to eat on banana leaves ..so journey ends upto next day while we were returning to mumbai early in the morning
