112-ft tall Adiyogi Shiva statue unveiled at Isha Foundation premises in Karnataka | India News

Chikkaballapura: On the auspicious occasion of Makar Sankranti, a 112-feet statue of Adiyogi Shiva was unveiled on the foothills of Nandi Hills on January 15. This 112-feet Adiyogi statue is a replica of the one in Coimbatore in Tamil Nadu. The Adiyogi statue has been built at Isha Foundation premises at Nandi Hills in Chikkaballapura district. The Ashram has been set up to promote Indian art, culture, and spiritual traditions. Cultural programmes including Bharathanatyam by Radhe Jaggi, daughter of Isha Foundation founder Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev and Kerala’s fire dance Theyam marked the event. Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai, State Health Minister K Sudhakar, and Primary and Secondary Education Minister B C Nagesh were present on the occasion.

However, on January 11, the court had ordered status quo following a public interest litigation against the construction alleging that it had violated various rules and laws related to forests and land acquisition.

On Friday, the advocate for the Isha Yoga Centre approached the division bench of Chief Justice Prasanna B Varale and Ashok S Kingai and submitted that the inauguration of the centre was scheduled for January 15 which will be attended by Vice President Jagdeep Dhankhar and other dignitaries.

The invitation regarding the inauguration was submitted to the court. The Isha Yoga Centre is installing a 112-ft statue of Adiyogi at Avalagurki in Chikkaballapura district. The court was told that no trees would be cut for the event and they were not going ahead with construction activities. 

The court also recorded this submission and said the event can go ahead as it was already fixed. The counsel for the petitioners sought a direction from the court that no fireworks should be used during the inauguration of the statue. Responding to it, the court opined that such events would not be held as it was a programme to be attended by the Vice President. The hearing of the case was adjourned to February 2.
