The Gandhi Memorial in Pondicherry

The Gandhi Memorial in Pondicherry


Pondicherry is a South Indian town with a French heart. The boulevards, long winding roads and virgin beaches ensure Pondicherry is free from unwanted sights and sounds. It is most definitely the best relaxation destination of South India. The peace and calm of the city has even led to the rise of the Aurobindo Ashram. This Ashram is frequented by countless people in search of Nirvana.

  • Sri Aurobindo Ashram

    Founded in 1926 by Sri Aurobindo and a French woman known as The Mother, this Ashram propounds spiritual beliefs that are a symbiosis of yoga and modern life. After Aurobindo’s death spiritual authority passed on to the Mother, who passed away in 1973. Located on Rue de la Marine, it is one of the most well-known and beautiful ashrams you will find to communicate with the universal energy within you. A constant flow of visitors file through the main ashram building which has the flower-festooned Samadhi (a tomb venerated as a shrine) of Aurobindo and The Mother in the central courtyard, where devotees gather and try to find the answers to peace. Opposite the main building, one can attend the enlightening lectures and philosophical talks that promise to enrich your life.
