Inaugurated on 24 February 2017, the 34.2 m (112 ft) tall ‘Adiyogi’ Lord Shiva steel statue located in Coimbatore at the Isha Yoga Centre, has been funded by Isha Foundation, founded by Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev. Designing it took 2.5 years and building it took eight months. The structure weighs a reported 500 tonnes. According to the yoga guru, the fact that it is 112 ft high signifies the 112 chakras in the human system, with which one can work to explore the 112 dimensions of life.
