A quite and peaceful place. No noise, no cell phone, no cameras. Just what one needs to sit quietly and contemplate your blessings.

The environment is very quite & is a well maintained burial ground of Sri Aurobindo. Good for meditation. Please visit during apt hours & one could find a store at the exit which houses books, lectures, photographs for sale. \Bharath
