Located at a distance of 14.1 km from Pondicherry, not only is Auroville a self-sustaining microcosm, but it is the closest humanity has come to realizing the ideal of Utopia. Based on Mother’s vision to have a place on Earth that no nation could claim as its sole property, it was established in 1966 by the mutual backing of Government of India and UNESCO who considered it as a project of immense importance to the future of humanity. 

An experimental town established by Mother, Auroville is a melting pot of cultures in the true sense of the word. Here you will not only witness how diversity of mankind can flourish harmoniously, without suppressing each other’s difference, but also a kaleidoscope of art and culture. The fact that it has not only survived but flourished and grown in the past 46 years is proof enough that Mother’s idea that sustainable and harmonious society is possible. 

You will find citizens to be from all over the globe, 45 countries to be precise. Amazing, isn’t it? They come from all walks of life, different cultures, religion, professions and age groups. Currently, the population stands at 2,200. Its design and architecture is a sight in itself. Your exploration will take you through the Peace Area, Industrial zone, Residential zone, International, cultural zone and green belt. Be sure to visit the cultural and the International zone at  Auroville , as at any given time, they play host to performing arts and you can get to see performances of artists from across the world. 

At the cultural centre do purchase some of the beautifully hand crafted creations, pottery, sculptures, paintings, etc, of the Aurovillians. It will forever be a reminder of how far idealism can take you and the rest of humanity.

Amazing place for Meditation

Auroville is a wonderful place to visit. I have visited with my father. At the entrance, they plays video about the history of Auroville. After then we need to walk 5-6 km inside,where Matri mandir will be visible. The appearance was extremely good. ...... read more

No horn sound, no pollution, no crowd. This place will give you peace. You can spend evening time here with friends and family. Best time to visit is during winter season(Jan and Feb).
