Matrimandir, Auroville

3.7
A place of meditation for practitioners of Integral yoga, Matrimandir features a huge golden sphere enveloped by twelve concrete "petals." The four main pillars symbolize wisdom, strength, beauty, and intimacy. The sphere, plated with golden discs, resembles a space ship that landed on an open field next to a large banyan tree--a scene right out of a '70s science fiction movie. The surrounding gardens, also called the Park of Unity, are as peaceful as the temple itself. Put Matrimandir at the forefront of your travel plans using our Auroville driving holiday planner .
