In spite of all good vision, in reality it became a extreme intolerant cult with abuse of power and money. People who live there are brainwashed and in contra of there view. Noteer more then one of the many cults

I visited with some of my friends. I visited this place out of curiosity. This place closes at 4 pm and you need to take pass in advance. If you want to spend some time free from all tensions, then this is the place to be. I would recommend this to anyone visiting Pondichery.

Please carry sufficient amount of water with you. Matri Mandir is a good place to visit, However the timings and the procedures are not so visitor friendly. The eateries...

If you need to get away from the hustle and bustle of southern India, and recharge your more spiritual side (or just relax for a few days), make your trek to Auroville. It is related in some way (that I don't exactly understand) to the Sri Aurobindo Ashrams, and has the same kicked-back vibe. I am most familiar with the...
