Huge places has to walk at least 3 km one way inside, so avoid to go with children, it will make them tired, for the day. As well they follow timing strictly. So reach with in time.

I went inside it to meditate with my partner and was surprised at how it made me feel and what i came away with after my visit. For years i have suffered with Chronic PTSD and the calming surrounds and people have... More

If you seek peace and beauty, this is the place to visit. The introductory video set the stage and then the walk to the Matrimandir gave an impression of walking towards eternity. Once you reach the designated spot through the woods and trees; the view is spectacular. It makes you want to go to the heaven that is in there.... More

This is the place where we are able to connect with Mother Nature. We found over 100 years old Banyan Tree here.

The culmination of spirituality and the science can be 'heard' through the Sound of Silence inside Matrimandir. A must visit and experinece. Keep a day or two aside for a dekko and feel of of the Matrimandir as it is generally not possible to get the same day time-slot.
