Best places to visit in The Auroville Tour
Matrimandir is at the centre of over 100 dispersed settlements beyond the lush greens of Puducherry. The dome structure, embellished with golden sheen will immediately catch the attention of tourists creating a hypnotic effect on them. Many tourists flock to Puducherry every year to witness the beauty of Matrimandir unfold during the dawn and dusk, when the sunlight adds many layers of natural filters to it. It is one of the best tour activities to indulge in here. The structure is an epitome of Yoga and is a space dedicated to discovering peace within. Matrimandir stands tall on four pillars namely, Maheshwari, Mahasaraswati, Mahakali and Mahalakshmi, dedicated to the Hindu goddesses and their values. It does not belong to any religion or section of the society, that’s precisely what makes it accessible and acceptable by one and all. It also consists of the great optically-perfect globe of glass and is surrounded by vast gardens in its Central Peace Area, a perfect spot to meditate and look inwards.
