One reviewer says worthwhile if you are spiritual. Guess that is why it was the strangest experience of my trip. Watching paper being made by hand and a weaver working a loom was interesting, but the rest left me cold.

This one you should not miss if you are going to Pondicherry. Just walking distance away from White town, war memorial, museum and Pondicherry beach. The ultimate peace one can experience here. People come and do spend some time under the holy tree and in front of Sri Aurobindo cemetery. All his written books are available there in several national... More

I have high respect for one of the most elevated Souls of the Universe i.e. Master Aurobindo. For over a year, I have been planning to visit Pondy. On 26th January 2017, the Master permitted me to visit the Ashram. It is a long week-end (Friday, Saturday and Sunday). Probably, i should have planned to visit the Place during the... More
