A calm and serene atmosphere prevails as you enter the place. It is a silent zone and you are not allowed to talk, carry mobile phones or click pictures. The ashram was such a peaceful place that you feel like sitting there and meditate as long as you have time. Inside this place suited for meditation also. Much needed visit...felt blooming mind after visit this Ashram
This is a very pious and peaceful place to be in.One can get pure sacred atmosphere inside the ashram. People are very polite and friendly here. Moreover, the place is extremely appreciated for the peace you get once you visit it. The management is very systematic. I loved the meditation session near samadhi in the evening time. It's worth taking a break from your busy schedules and give this place a visit and explore this system more. It is fabulous! P.S. No photography is allowed inside the ashram, so no snaps!
This is a small place and I saw people getting confused between this and auroville ashram (golden globe)... Kids below 3 years not allowed inside.... No mobile... They make sure everyone switches off their mobile before getting in. Inside is very calm and peaceful... Kids will not enjoy this place... For elders also nothing much to see... Those who follow Aurobindo would like this place.
If you follow Aurobindo then this place is so good I suppose. For others it's like a museum and nothing much to see. The place inside and outside is neat and less polluted which is good. And ofcourse it is near to the Rock beach which is another attraction.
It's the abode of spiritual retreat of Lord Sri Aurobindo & the Divine Mother. Vibrant sweet spiritual peace & silence, beuaty & harmony pervades the Divine landscapes.. ! Devotees & seekers throngs regularly, round the year.
