Trip to Auroville

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]After doing many trips to Pondycherry this time we went to visit Auroville. It looked it was a different country altogether. It is located inside the forest and the driving feel was very nice. I opened the windows and allowed the fresh air to come in. But the May month heat was beating us in the process.

We went to Matrimandir and it requires 7 days prior to getting inside the mandir. Visitors were stopped from a place and as the usual crowd went on selfie binge. We are no exception. I want to learn more, so we went inside the information center and there was a miniature of the Mandir with some dissections to understand the architecture of it.[/vc_column_text][vc_text_separator title=”Things You Can Do:” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-check-square-o” i_color=”orange” title_align=”separator_align_left” style=”dotted” css_animation=”none” add_icon=”true”][vc_column_text]

Overall it is one time visit and something to buy as souvenir. [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
