Matrimandir




Matrimandir is a famous meditation and spiritual center at Auroville, Pondicherry.

A modern architectural marvel, it is a large golden sphere, which seems to be rising out of the earth, symbolizing the birth of a new consciousness seeking to manifest. It holds the reputation of having the single largest glass crystal in the world. Matrimandir ó the soul of Auroville ó is also the center of the township.

Complete silence is observed inside. Entry is free; but the pass has to be obtained from the Visitor Center.
