Chikkaballapura: The 112 feet Adiyogi statue inaugurated on January 15 on Makara Sankranti day on foot hills of Nandi Hill in Chikkaballapura has been attracting large number of devotees.

Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai inaugurated a 112-foot tall Adi Yogi statue, which is roughly 60 kilometers from Bengaluru, and is a replica of a popular statue at Isha Yoga Centre in Coimbatore.

Nandi Hill is famous hill station near to silicon valley. Bangaloreans in large number visit hill during weekends. The 12-feet-tall statue has become major attraction of devotees now.

On Sunday January 22 more than 5000 devotees visited the statue and offered prayers. The parking area was full of vehicles. Another attraction of statue is laser show on statue at 7.00 pm at night. On Sunday standing in front of the huge Shiva idol, some performed yoga, and sang devotional prayers. Also there are others taking selfies in front of Shiva. Such scenes were found in the new ashram of Isha Foundation. Except near Coimbatore in Tamil Nadu, there is no 112 feet Shiva idol anywhere in the State.

Knowing that the laser show will be held on the idol of Shiva at 7.00 pm on weekends, thousands of people were waiting from noon to evening, but were disappointed as the laser show was canceled due to technical problems.

The Isha Yoga Foundation has decided to set up Ashram in Chikkaballapura which is native of Sadguru Jaggi Vasudev. Though the foundation allowed public to visit statue, there is no much facility for people as the construction of Ashram is still going on. The visitors should carry food and water.

The ashram attracting large number of people within a week of inauguration would definitely attract more number of devotees in the coming days
