Born at the foot of Arunachala, Saran has been loving this holy place wholeheartedly. He speaks very good English, has wonderful communications skills and is always attentive to every group member. Saran is very disciplined in his own spiritual practices; his knowledge about Arunachala, the temples and the spiritual masters is amazing! We wish we could have stayed longer and learnt more from him. In addition, Saran is an excellent photographer and he makes lovely video clips. If you want to have wonderful experiences in Tiru and explore this spiritual place completely, Saran is the first person you should contact. He is such a genuine and passionate guide and he will definitely make your trip memorable. Highly recommended! We will come back again! :)

I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder. I would like to say special thanks to Saran for showing me to each colour of the sunrise and sunset at the most beautiful holy mountain of Arunachala, Tiruvannamalai. He has made my soul to reacquainted with the universe. He filled my journey with so much of knowledge about the sacred divine of Arunachala, made every minute special, took really care of all my needs and gave me memories to cherish forever. I had such a soulful journey and wonderful stay at Arunachala. Thank again to Saran for all the sharing, guide and care. I will definitely return back to Arunachala!

It's hard to describe Arunachala - you simply must go if you are called , by the works of Bhagavan Ramana Maharshi and Arunachala mountain. We couldn't have asked for anyone better than our guide Saran and a stay better than the retreat he runs : Arundari Retreat Centre . The accomodation is stunning with views of the mountain and pastoral fields, It is basic, clean yet superb in every way. It is set away from the main centre but auto rickshaws can be easily arranged. Jehan and her mother and their team run it well. We were fortunate to have freshly baked bread and wonderful Indian vegetarian food. Then there's Saran - who took us quietly and deeply into the spirit and essence of Arunachala. We spent three full days there . Saran truly knows the land and the spiritual teachings . He's quite a gifted soul !
