  • This Ashram, meeting place for reflection and meditation, in the bustling French district of Pondicherry. Aurobindo, guru yoga, poets and madmen opened the doors of his wisdom and House to create a harmonious community based on love, peace and integration. In this beautiful House, where silence prevents outside noise to penetrate its walls and souls, is a place that invites you to sit and meditate, or read a book of poems and plunge ne the wisdom of Sri Aurobindo.

  • Sri Aurobindo Ashram is conveniently located. Visited during weekday so found no issue in parking. Photography is not allowed inside. Also, speaking loudly is not allowed. There is a bookstore inside which has books related to his ideology available inside. It is not possible to know more about him at the Ashram because no-one is speaking.
  • So calm and so quite this area itself maintained properly french people can be seen here and almost all the time so much people are coming here you can stay here but if get a chance to get a room you can gain knowledge about the person Aurobindo. There is separate place to get book in all languages definitely you can feel the peace beach is near by place parking is quite complicated.
  • A beautiful place to visit. Calm and quiet. Good for meditation. A small museum and book store attached. Beautiful full herb garden
  • This is a very calm place specially dedicated for meditation. This place propagates the idealogy of Sir Aurobindo and Mother. A must visit place to get the eternal peace of mind....
  • Visit to pay your respects and homage. Good books available in many languages to select. Some wonderful flower plants and cactus collection.

Where to stay in Pondicherry

The bulk of visitors to Pondicherry choose to stay in the east side of town. Close to the sea and the well-maintained waterfront, the old colonial French district features a number of stylish boutique hotels and budget-friendly guesthouses, as well as a solid selection of standard hotels along the newer roads. Ashrams and spa retreats provide an array of additional facilities, usually with sea views and more spacious surroundings to the north of the main city.
