Auroville wants to be a universal town where men and women of all countries are able to live in peace and progressive harmony above all creeds, all politics and all nationalities.
The purpose of Auroville is to realise human unity.

Inner Chamber of the Matrimandir still closed to visitors --- Visitors Centre and Matrimandir Viewing point are open.

Currently Auroville finds itself in a period of transition. We are - as is the world - at the cusp of a new era and cannot but trust that our friends, well-wishers and readers will take the signs of turmoil and re-adaptation in Auroville that may come to their knowledge through various media, in the wider context of renewal and growth.

Visitor's centre and Matrimandir viewing point are now open all days, including Sunday.
Please note that booking for concentration in the Matrimandir Inner Chamber remains discontinued until further notice - due to Covid-19 restrictions, access is available to the Matrimandir Viewing Point only.
