A true location from which one can obtain the authentic experience of Yoga by means of mental and physical purification. Thapobhoomi derives its name from the words thapas (penance) and bhoomi (land). The utmost level of mental and physical bliss is attained through the practice of such yogic techniques. This purification procedure has been completed on the sacred ground of Pazhayannur, situated along the banks of the "Gayathri River" in Thrissur, Kerala. "Thapobhoomi" is therefore an appropriate appellation for this haven of tranquility and calm. Scholars assert that Muneeshvaran, a Shaivite ascetic, attained enlightenment through meditation on this land many years ago. Folklore in the village of Pazhayannur recounts his mystic exploits. Following this great Sage's departure, it lapsed into obsolescence and was subsequently appropriated by Mother Nature.
