  • Very quiet and peaceful place to meditate. They don't allow photography, so no photos. They have one guest House in Rock beach called park guest House with sea view. The rooms are economical and peaceful. They don't provide toiletries and room service. The gate closes at 10.00Pm.
  • It's a wonderful place. Ashram is covered with flowers, flowers and flowers. You should maintain silence inside the Ashram. You can pray and remain peaceful. It's such a wonderful feeling and you can be closer to nature. The flowers and color of flowers are good for eyesight. Keep watching these flowers at least for couple of minutes, close your eyes and open them back looking at the flowers. You will feel the difference. Travel from Chennai is roughly 2.5 hours to 3 hours with avg driving speed of around 70kms per hour. The Ashram will be closed by 12.30 pm. So try to make it before that. Else it opens around 4 pm. Enjoy your trip and it's a beautiful place to visit.
  • Excellent place. Can't meditate. Maintain silence. Has timings. Drinking water and restrooms available. Car parking restricted. Would need to park at a distance. Check with local parking rules before parking anywhere unless you really want to visit the nearest traffic police station. Children below 3 years are not allowed. Photography is not permitted inside.
  • It is the most peaceful place to be. One can sit near the samadhi and sincerely meditate. The place is full of flowers and the ambience soothes your soul. You must maintain silence at all times and just meditate in front of the Mother. Don't forget to collect her blessing flowers.
