A hot summer afternoon and a solo trip to Auroville to visit Matrimaindir, the friendship temple. Long trek to a deep wooded place, and a look at the marvelous globe. It's a quiet place...gives a strange sense of calmness.

Matrimandir in Auroville is worth a visit. Although we could not enter the premises of the temple for the meditation session as it requires prior booking, the mere view of the piece of art from the outside is breathtaking. You need to walk a km...More
