  • Very quiet and peaceful place to meditate. They don't allow photography, so no photos. They have one guest House in Rock beach called park guest House with sea view. The rooms are economical and peaceful. They don't provide toiletries and room service. The gate closes at 10.00Pm.

  • It's a wonderful place. Ashram is covered with flowers, flowers and flowers. You should maintain silence inside the Ashram. You can pray and remain peaceful. It's such a wonderful feeling and you can be closer to nature. The flowers and color of flowers are good for eyesight. Keep watching these flowers at least for couple of minutes, close your eyes and open them back looking at the flowers. You will feel the difference. Travel from Chennai is roughly 2.5 hours to 3 hours with avg driving speed of around 70kms per hour. The Ashram will be closed by 12.30 pm. So try to make it before that. Else it opens around 4 pm. Enjoy your trip and it's a beautiful place to visit.

  • This place is extremely peaceful and the ambience is great for praying. The flowers inside the compound are absolutely stunning. This place propagates the idealogy of Sir Aurobindo and Mother. A must visit place to get the eternal peace of mind.... Our Cameras and mobile phones are not allowed so be careful. The parking is also congested. Footwear’s are also not allowed.
