ARCHITECTURE OF THE SPACE 1.

ORGANISATION: THIS COMPLEX IS FOUND TO BE CLASSIFIED UNDER CENTRALISED ORGANISATIN IN WHICH DYANALINGA IS A STABLE CONCENTRATED COMPOSITION THAT CONSISTS OF NUMBER OF SECONDARY SPACES GROUPED AROUND THIS LARGE DOMINENT CENTRAL SPACE. THE FORM OF DYANALINGA ARE RELATIVELY COMPACT AND GEOMETRICALLY REGULAR AND CAN USED TO y TERMINATE THE AXIAL CONDITIONS. y SERVE AS AN OBJECT FROM WITHIN A DEFINITE FIELD OR VOLUME OF SPACE. THOUGH THIS CENTRALISED ORGANISATION IS INHERENTLY DIRECTIONAL YET CONDITIONS OF APPROACH AND ENTRY HAS BEEN SPECIFIED BY SITE AND THE ARTICULATION OF ONE OF THE SECONDARY ELEMENT (THE STAMBA) AS AN ENTRANCE OR GATEWAY. 2. ENTRANCE

ENTERING THE COMPLEX A DEFINED FIELD OF EXTERIOR SPACE, INVOLVES THE ACT OF PENETRATING A VERTICAL PLANE THAT DISTINGUISHES ONE SPACE FROM ANOTHER. A PROJECTED ENTRANCE FROM A TRANSITIONAL SPACE ANNOUNCES ITS FUNCTION OF APPROACH AND PROVIDES OVERHEAD SHELTER .THIS FENCING CREATES A FEEL OF SACREDNESS. THE PORCH INFRONT CONTAINING 7 COLUMNS DENOTES 7 CHAKRAS OF HUMAN BODY AND IT FRAMES A VIEW THAT THE MOUNTAINS SITS ON IT AND THE BLOCKS THE VIEW OF THE INTERIORS. THESECOLUMNS MANIFOLDS THOSE DIMENSIONS ARE 5 X4 CREATES MASSIVENESS. THE SERIES OF COLUMNS CREATES A LINEAR AXIS WHICH DRAGS US TO THE ENTRY POINT OF THE COMPLEX. THESE COLUMNS ARE ROUND, EDGED, SIMPLE AND BOLD. THE UPSIDE DOWN HUNG ORNAMENTATION OF SNAKE IS USED TO REPRESENT THE CONCEPT THAT THE INNER TRANSITION ENERGY RETURNS BACK TO THE SOURCE.

THE GROUND SURFACE LEVELS DOWN TO 4 AND PORCH AGAINS RISES TO THE LEVEL OF 8 SERVES FOR THE PURPOSE OF ACCUPUNCTURE TREATMENT AND ALSO CREATES A UNIQUE AMBIENCE. 3. APPROACH A SPIRAL PATH PROLONGS THE SEQUENCE OF THE APPROACH AND EMPHASIS THE THREE DIMENSIONAL CHARACTERISTICS OF THE BUILDINGS AS WE MOVE AROUND ITS PERIMETER. THE APPROACH TO CLARIFY ITS POSITION. A)NANDHI: THE NANDI IS A CENTRAL IDOL WHICH ANNOUNCES THE DIRECTION OF THE ENTRY. IT FORMS A GRANDEUR IN SCALE WITH THE PROPORTION OF HUMAN AS THE HEIGHT OF NANDHI IS 18 AND THE PORCH IS ELEVATED TO AN HEIGHT OF ABOUT 28 . B) AXIS: THE MAIN AXIS OR THE ORIENTATION OF BUILDINGS IS ALONG EAST WEST DIRECTION AND THE DYANALINGA FACES THE EAST AS SIMILAR AS TO ALL TEMPLE COMPLEX DESIGN OF SOUTHERN INDIA.

NANDHI STANDS FIRST IN THE AXIS CONTAINING THE LINGA AS THE FINAL MOST REACH. WITHIN THIS AXIS THE DIRECT VIEW OF THE LINGA IS BEING SHATTERED BY A STAMBA WHICH SPACE THE QUALITY OF THE COMPLEX WHICH IS NON RELIGIOUS AND NON POLITICAL. C) MONOLITH THE MAIN AXIS IS DIVERTED BY A SERIES OF STRUCTURE THROUGH SPIRAL APPROACH AROUND THE BUILDING. THESE SECONDARY STRUCTURES INCLUDES LINGABHIRAVI SHRINE, THE VAULT OFFICE AND THE THEERTHAKUND. 4. SEQUENCE OF SPACES: AS ACCORDING TO TRADITIONAL WISDOM AND YESTER YEAR S VASTU THE LINGABHAIRAVI HAS BEEN POSITIONED AGAINST THE SOUTHWEST PART OF THE SITE. THE LOCATION OF ABLUTION HAS TO BE TOWARDS NORTH AND HENCE THE THEERTHAKUND STANDS AT THE NORTH AND THE VAULT OFFICE INBETWEEN THEM. THESE ASPECTS OF ORIENTATION AND ITS SPIRAL WAY OF APPROACH WOULD PREPARE ONESELF FO RMEDITATION TO GIVE UP ALL MISFEELINGS,

TO REFRESH AT THEERTHAKUND AND TO REGENERATE ONESELF AT THE DYANALINGA.
