Sri Aurobindo Ashram has played a significant role in the socio-economic-spiritual fabric of Puducherry since its establishment almost a century back. Therefore it is not surprising that the Ashram and its various branches together occupy some of the best heritage properties in Puducherry.
While it is possible to enter the main Ashram building freely during visiting hours, some sections of the Ashram require that you obtain a pass before you can be allowed to enter.
If you get accommodation in any of the Ashram Guest Houses, you will be given the appropriate passes.
There are daily conducted tours for those interested in visiting the various units of the Ashram.
The Ashram walk covers Ashram Office (starting point), Ashram Library, French Consulate, French Institute, Ashram Playground, Ashram Art House, Le Foyer de Soldat - Legion Hall for soldiers who served in French wars, Ashram and Samadhi, Golconde - Main residential quarters for the Ashramites, Auroshika (shop), La Tienda (shop), Boutique d', Auroville (shop), Auroshree (shop) and Vak Bookshop (shop).
