A good way to connect with the life and work of Vivekananda and the ashram.Best place to go to for vegetarian food. There is local bus service from the ashram to the beach and other places. Right on the main road. Do not miss it. Unfortunately we discovered this only at the very end of our trip.

You can see peacocks and other birds in the natural garden. Within the campus, there are 2 temples, a library, couple of exhibition halls and vast garden areas to walk around. It also... More
