The Sri Aurobindo Ashram is a spiritual community (ashram) established at Pondicherry, in the Indian territory of Puducherry, by Sri Aurobindo on 24 November 1926 (Siddhi Day). We were on holiday in this once upon time french colony in India.This ashram gives you peace of mind and self realization.Definitely recommended.

The Ashram exudes a sense of peace and tranquility. The small garden has countless pots of beautiful , colourful flowers. People can sit quietly or meditate by the samadhi as long as they wish.
