Location

The union territory of Puducherry (formerly Pondicherry; generally known as ‘Pondy’) was under French rule until 1954.The city retained its French look with hits wide roads and splendid colonial houses. The internationally famous Sri Aurobindo Ashram and its offshoot just north of town, Auroville, drawing large numbers of spiritually minded visitors.

Pondicherry is famous for its colonial-era ville, more bohemian-chic, New Age-meets-Old World hang-out on the international travel trail.The older 'French' part of town is full of quiet, clean streets, lined with bougainvillea-draped colonial-style townhouses numbered in an almost logical manner. Newer Pondy is typically, hectically South Indian.

Auroville, 'the City of Dawn', is a place that anyone with idealistic leanings will find compelling. It's an international community dedicated to peace, sustainability and 'divine consciousness' where people from across the globe, ignoring creed, color, and nationality, work together to build a universal, cash-free, nonreligious township.

Some 12 kilometers northwest of Puducherry, Auroville was founded in 1968 by 'the Mother', co-founder of Puducherry's Sri Aurobindo Ashram. Tucked into the jungle are more than 100 scattered settlements, with about 2500 residents of 52 nationalities - some 60% of Aurovillians are foreign.

Visiting offers a glimpse into this self-styled utopia, where you can bliss out on the peaceful setting, the oddly beautiful Matrimandir and the easygoing friendliness. What's more, you'll find some excellent restaurants and cafes within Auroville and surrounding villages.

Your accommodation is just at the entrance of Auroville, making it ideal for you to experience alternate life style along with practicing yoga .
