  • 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.
  • Calm and peaceful place. You can't speak inside and people use hand gestures to guide you. Too many flowers inside. a really beautiful and calm place.
  • Calm and Serene place. Lots of flowers maintained very good. It's for people who follow Aurabinda and who like to meditate in calm place.
  • This is a celebrated place in Pondicherry but is just for people who are a bit spiritual or devotees, it's a good place. Nothing to see and feel for others. It will be open only on specific times. You have to leave your chappals outside to enter the place. You also have to stay in queues to get inside. The place is the resting place. You can buy Aurobindo books, photos, quotes, CDs and many things there.
  • The place is extremely peaceful and the ambience is great for praying. The flowers inside the compound are absolutely stunning. Cameras and mobile phones are not allowed so be careful. The parking is also conjusted. Footwears are also not allowed.
