Well maintenance and the decoration of flowers are really great to see. Many people from different countries visit this place daily ofcourse French people are high in number. This is cost free attraction... More

Ashram is very close to promenade amidst French quarters. The last remains of both Guru and mother reside here. One must maintain absolute silence. Serenity envelopes as soon as you enter. There is a small floor seating around the tombs. It would be good to go when the crowd is thin. This way one gets more time to absorb the... More

The samadhi area is flanked by people, who worship Sri Aurobindo. The caretakers take great interest to keep the area clean and environment positive. The flowers & plants are very well done.

We went to this ashram after getting good reviews from several people. However, we did not find anything interesting except for the samadhi where several people were meditating. Not a great place to visit.

Its a quite little place some distance from the beach. The villa has the samadhi of Sri aurbindo. It is laden with the history and works of the great man. There is no entry fees. One is routed through the villa and disciples ensure that there is no noise while doing so. Mobiles are switched off and children are quieted... More

Visit the Ashram samadhi and sit there in quiet meditation. If seeing a number of people walk past you does not help you meditate, head to the ashram bookstore just behind the samadhi and explore it. The books are very cheap. Buy thinner books, if you are trying to get an introduction into the Integral yoga or Sri Aurobindo's teachings... More

Maha Samadhi of Holy Mother is situated inside the Ashram . A place of intense spiritual vibrations . The fragrance of agarbathis and flowers that decorate the samadhi give a sublime experience to our minds . An apt place for quite introspection . A must visit for everyone .

Its a must see place in life. Know about the freedom fighter, seer - Sri Aurobindo and his spiritual collaborator - the Mother from here. See their old rooms and buy books on yoga. Their final resting place is there. It is filled with serenity and bliss. Sit there and observe stillness. Go back by inheriting some peace and bliss.... More
