Auroville

City Of Dawn



Conceived as a ĎUniversal Towní, Auroville is located 10 km north of Pondicherry town. People from different nationalities, faiths and beliefs, live here in an amazing endeavor of community living.

The construction of Auroville was started in 1968 under the guidance of The Mother (the famous disciple of Shri Aurobindo). The development of the city is still in progress. Several countries have set up permanent pavilions, reflecting the culture and ethos of their countries. More than 50 languages are spoken here.

Matrimandir, a modern architectural wonder, is a major attraction in Auroville.
