Auroville is a multicultural community which is home for people from more than 60 countries. Our unique way of living in a community with shared spaces and being one with nature is a treat to the soul. Covered with lush forests and elegant gardens, Auroville hosts a wide species of birds, animals, flora and fauna. Exploring alternative techniques of building, farming, education, and economy, we strive to share this knowledge with the world. From what once was a barren land, our pioneers have turned this place into a paradise for generations to come. See for yourself! This guided tour gives a flavor of how we function as a diverse community, without a physical leader. Opportunity to experience life in Auroville.
For anyone who is curious to explore what Auroville is and how we function differently from the world outside. It is designed for all ages, families, friend groups, solo adventures, and everybody!
