Southern Sojourn with Sadhguru

We invite you on the Southern Sojourn, into an age-old land of miracles, magic and mystery. Join Sadhguru into the region that gave birth to Southern Mysticism, and experience it through the eyes of a mystic.

The southernmost state of India, Tamil Nadu, is home to thousands of ancient temples dating back to several millennia. Consecrated by the mystics of yore, these temples were not created as centers of worship but places of immense energy to catalyze one’s spiritual growth. This southern spiritual tapestry is dotted with places reverberating with power even today.

Explore awe-inspiring colossal temples built over generations, and do your sadhana together in these spiritual spaces. This is a rare pilgrimage – bask in the glorious legacy of saints and sages of the past, brought alive through satsangs and guided meditative processes with Sadhguru.

Isha Sacred Walks offers this program not as a tour, but as a possibility for deep spiritual transformation imbibing the overwhelming power, energy and grace of these sacred spaces.

The ancient South Indian temples were built based on an intricate science. Every minute detail of these magnificent structures was perfectly designed and matched to create a tremendous field of energy. These are not places for prayer but to simply sit and charge yourself with a powerful energy that enhances life in a phenomenal way.

South India is home to thousands of temples, the majority of which can be found in Tamil Nadu. Known as the “Land of Temples”, the state is home to nearly 33,000 ancient temples, some as old as 800 to 1,200 years.

The Jambukeshwarar temple at Thiruvanaikaval, dedicated to Lord Shiva, honors the element of water. It has an underground water spring that naturally fills the sanctum where the linga stands.

Temples in the South are characterized by towering gopurams, majestic pillar structures, sprawling temple complexes and ornate, embellished entrances. Boasting complex architecture, a variety of sculptures and rich inscriptions, the temples remain the very essence of the culture and heritage of South India, with historical records dating back to at least 3,000 years.

Many temples in Tamil Nadu are nothing short of marvels. Constructed over 1,000 years ago, the Brihadeeswarar temple at Thanjavur, better known as Periya Kovil (Big Temple), is considered the greatest glory of Chola architecture with its imposing 216 feet-high central tower, one of the tallest in the world. This incredible temple tower is capped by a single stone weighing 100 tons, which remains an engineering enigma even today.

For all this and more, a journey with the Southern Sojourn is an intensely spiritual experience, complete with the inclusion of meditation sessions, satsangs, spiritual processes and much more.

With our team of highly skilled, trained and dedicated teachers and volunteers always ready to help you with every step you take on this memorable journey, you will be enveloped in a sense of endless energy, tranquility and oneness.
