Coimbatore : Adiyogi Divya Darshanam, a unique light and sound show will open for visitors at the Isha Yoga Centre here on May 4.
The show will become a regular weekend feature at Adiyogi after this inaugural show for visitors and will happen at 8 p.m. every Saturday and Sunday, besides other auspicious days such as Amavasya and Pournami among others.
Twenty-four hi-tech laser projectors will bring alive the story of Adiyogi in a vivid light and sound show with background narrative in the voice of Sadhaguru Jaggi Vasudev, the founder of Isha.
A team of more than 150 volunteers and professionals worked for six months on the light and sound project known as projection mapping and thevisual special effects were created partly in India and partly in Korea.
It is the first known projection mapping on a black contoured surface, as projection mapping is usually done on lighter shades that reflect light unlike black which absorbs it.
It is also usually done on flat surfaces such as a wall and this is probably the largest projection mapping spectacle in terms of surface area – a total area of 8000 sq ft..
Adiyogi Divya Darshanam was unveiled by President Ramnath Kovind on the night of Mahashivaratri on March 4 when he was the Chief Guest at the 25th anniversary of Mahashivaratri celebrations at the Cente.
This year. Adiyogi Divya Darshanam will open for public exactly two months to the date and is expected to draw larger crowds at the iconic Adiyogi, one of the biggest attractions at the Center, standing 122 feet high.
