How did Auroville start?


The concept of Auroville – an ideal township devoted to an experiment in human unity – came to the Mother as early as the 1930s. In the mid 1960s the concept was developed and put before the Govt. of India, who gave their backing and took it to the General Assembly of UNESCO. In 1966 UNESCO passed a unanimous resolution commending it as a project of importance to the future of humanity, thereby giving their full encouragement.

Auromode Apartments

Auromode Apartments was started in 2014 as there was no demand for industrial area. So, renovation was done up to 37 apartments which are fully furnished and equipped with  small kitchenettes.

We have also created a Yoga Space for 25 people and a  treatment room called “Auromode Yoga Space”.

We hope in the next year to create another yoga space for 50 people with more facilities for the guest of Auromode Yoga space.

Today, Auromode Apartments is one of the largest Auroville guest houses, employing 15 people with a common kitchen to cater to the needs of our guest.
