Auroville

Auroville

Pondicherry sightseeing will be incomplete without a visit to Auroville. Auroville is located around 10 kilometres away from the main city of Pondicherry and is a unique township that saw its foundations laid in 1968 with support from the UNESCO. What makes this town unique is its concept of universal living where around 50,000 people coming from different parts of the world and speaking different languages and having different cultures live together.

This was also conceptualized by Sri Aurobindo and “the mother” who were researching the idea of human unity to attain a higher realm of consciousness called Supermind or Supramental.

At its inauguration, almost 5000 people gathered at the centre of this township and representatives of 124 nations and all the Indian states carried a handful of soil from their respective homelands and placed in a symbolic marble lotus bud which marks the “humanity in unity” concept.  Today the population of Auroville stands at 2500 and anybody is welcome to stay here provided they contribute towards its vision. It is a good idea to make a booking before going for a visit.
