I was told that 1 crore and 30 lakh is about $300,000 in US dollars. click on the above link and you'll see why it is my dream yoga shala.

mmmmmm...I can just imagine having a yoga and meditation center there, bringing in teachers I know like Gehlek Rimpoche, Paul Grilley, Sarah Powers, and Max Strom for retreats....

people have told me that since I love India so much, I should open a yoga shala in South India, along the same lines as shalas in Goa that are run by westerners. however, foreigners can not own property in India, especially property like this which is agricultural.

but one can always dream....

Hello Linda, I will be in India this December. Do you have a list of favorite yoga places that I should try to visit while I'm there? Are there any resources you might recommend near Delhi?

and I will be in India at the end of December for one month!

sorry, I don't know north India, I have only been to the south. but I suggest you become a member of IndiaMike.com, the ONLY India travel website you will ever need, and post the question there. You'll find the answer there....

Oh, how lovely! I can see what you see for this space. I paused for a moment, closed my eyes, and sent support for your dream. May you be led and provided for as the way unfolds before you.
