A calm and serene place to visit the Ashram which was inhabited by Aurobindo and Mother. It is an experience to be done through self-introspection like a celebration with(/within) yourself and not outside by being loud or talking to others. (NOTE: Kindly switch off your phones and avoid discussing with others while entering the Ashram)

The Ashram is located on the better side of Pondy very close to the sea shore. The entire area looks very similar to the French streets in France. The Ashram houses the samadhi of both Sri Aurobindho and the Mother. When Aurobindo passed away a separate compartment in the Samadhi was made for the Mother and she was laid next... More

This place is basically for people who wants to feel peace in their life. It is called ashram but it is home of Shri Aurobindo. You can go inside and can meditate if you want to and can buy inspirational books written by Shri Aurobindo and also books based on his life.
