Sri Aurobindo Ashram - Review
If you are a spiritual person, you will love to visit the Sri Aurobindo Ashram. In many ways the Ashram and the philosophy behind it make it a very important part of the cityÃ¢€™s identity. This beautiful place that was once home to a brilliant modern thinker is still the source of the practice of his philosophy. The Integral Yoga of Sri AurobindoÃ¢€™s teachings make this place very popular with culture seekers and the seekers of spirituality.
You will be able to learn a lot more about the thoughts of this man and his disciple, the mother and be able to see the place where they propagated their thoughts from. The Ashram itself is quite beautiful and there is a lot to see in and around it. The quaint little buildings and the garden create a very peaceful atmosphere. They have a lot of activities including lectures and guidance sessions.
A lot of tourists even travel from far and wide to come and stay here and experience the thinking space of one of the most well-known modern Indian thinkers. The ashram is certainly a must visit. Located in the French side of the town it is ina wonderful area to explore as well.

Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Puducherry Reviews
Peaceful and silent. Very clean and well maintained. Cant post pics since mobiles and cameras are not allowed. There is a spiritual vibe that can be felt. One must read about the Great Master and then go to such a place to pay homage and seek divine connection. There is a book store and a reception that guides courteously. Don’t forget to buy a guide map - just Rs 5/-. But this will show you all the places around that you could cover.
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. You will be mesmerized by the beauty of the place. There are beautiful flowering trees and flower beds across the place. Even the main hall and the final resting place of Sri Aurobindo is tastefully decorated.
The most peaceful place. Very tidy and maintained in an applaudable manner. Beautiful and Serene place. Few things to mention are - Photography is not allowed. Have to switch off the phone when you enter. Children below 3 years are not allowed. Small museum is there where you can view pictures of Mother and Sri Aurobindo. Totally a great place to have a calm and peaceful mind.
Nice location, situated on the sea shore and in a calm ,quiet,lush green also serene atmosphere, small but highly decorated peaceful place, photography is prohibited, mobile phones are to be switched off and keep silence inside Ashram campus. Everything is neat and clean and after visiting the place might change your spiritual mind and soul.
The Ashram for Meditation to relax your mind. Peaceful and calm. Mobile phone or camera strictly prohibited inside. Children below 5yrs are not allowed inside. Less space for parking. Nearby manasula vinayagar temple. Small shops(road side vehicle ) available nearby.
