Adiyogi Shiva statue

World’s largest bust sculpture

An iconic inspiration that is recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s largest bust sculpture, which is dedicated to the Hindu deity, Lord Shiva.

The towering Adiyogi steel bust statue which stands at the height of 112 feet (34 m) tall in India is dedicated to Lord Shiva. It is located in the sprawling campus of the Isha Yoga center, about 30 km from Coimbatore city, Tamil Nadu, India.

Built for inspiring and promoting yoga, and to remind the world about inner transformation and liberation, the sculpture was inaugurated in February 2017. It is owned and maintained by the non-religious organization called Isha Foundation. According to its founder, Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev, ‘Adiyogi is a reminder for humanity to shift from religion to responsibility.’

The statue’s 112 feet height symbolizes the 112 methods to obtain freedom or moksha – a theme in yogic culture. It also represents the 112 chakras or points of focus in the body used in meditation. Despite the overtones of Hinduism at Adiyogi, it is a non-religious place. People of all faith and religion are welcome to visit and partake in any events that unfold.

The Isha Foundation often holds cultural programs, dinners and other events of camaraderie in front of the statue. A quaint shrine is at the base of the statue where visitors can chant or meditate. Unlike traditional Indian temples, visitors are allowed to take selfies with Adiyogi. .
