A farm and Vastu guest house has been set up amidst nature Kolli Hills. Following the advice of the Siddhar Agastya in the naadis this guest house has been built to help spiritual Travellers to stay on the Remote Holy hill and progress with their spiritual practices. Various Gurus have visited this place and blessed it right from its foundation period. Accordingly many Gurus have interpreted and recognised energy points on the land, where A Shiva linga is to be installed and a Dakshinamoorthy for the sake of the Guru worship.
Kolli hills is famous for its herbs and more in specific rare herbs. In order to promote the Siddha medicine we wish to make a Special Herbal Garden and also include a Rare Herb Collection and later we promote to give Siddha medicine classes for those who wish to learn more in this regard.
With the installation of the Shiva linga-Certain holy herbal trees like Vilva (Aegle Marmelos) and Nagalinga tree (Couroupita guianensis) have also been planted for the sacred Shiva worship.
