I visited with some of my friends. I visited this place out of curiosity. This place closes at 4 pm and you need to take pass in advance. If you want to spend some time free from all tensions, then this is the place to be. I would recommend this to anyone visiting Pondichery.

We visited there as a group of friends, great place to find peace away from the hustling cities, continous access to phones and whatsapp. This place consists a lot of french people around along with some local people. Most of them are actually walking around or rides bicycles. It is always recommended to take appointment a day prior in case... More

Unless you have taken a pass to the meditation center a day prior it doesn't make sense travelling from pondicherry to here which is about rs. 600 return. The visitation centre is 15 mins walking distance from the reception but you can't go in unless you have a pass made a day prior and starts around 9.30 am. Beware this... More

I visited Auroville with my Spouse. It is a place where you can explore nature at it's best. Though many residents use bicycle. It is better to walk around and explore. Please carry sufficient amount of water with you. Matri Mandir is a good place to visit, However the timings and the procedures are not so visitor friendly. The eateries... More

If you need to get away from the hustle and bustle of southern India, and recharge your more spiritual side (or just relax for a few days), make your trek to Auroville. It is related in some way (that I don't exactly understand) to the Sri Aurobindo Ashrams, and has the same kicked-back vibe. I am most familiar with the... More
