Occupying a high ridge overlooking the Pacific in the westernmost part of California, the land of Odiyan was called “Crest of the Condor” by the original Pomo people of the area. Depleted from logging and overgrazing, Odiyan has been planted with thousands of trees, shrubs and flowering plants since its founding in 1975. The almost fifty acres of the inner Central Mandala containing the temples and main orchards have become lush. The remaining one hundred acres within the perimeter fence hold orchards, reservoirs, meadows and groves of planted and natural trees. Beyond the perimeter fence lies the remaining almost 900 acres of rolling hills and valleys; the Circumabulation Road, planted and natural forests with a wide variety of trees and shrubs. large areas of natural meadow, craggy ravines, rock outcroppings and spectacular sky-wide views of land and sea.
