Auroville

IMG_0319

These are photographs – probably from the early 1970’s, of the first developments at Auroville in Tamil Nadu. A non-sectarian utopian community for the future of mankind instigated by Sri Aurobindo and The Mother. I was fortunate enough to visit earlier in the year and suffice to say, one of the most intriguing places I’ve ever been to.

This is the building at the heart of the community; the Matrimandir or Mother’s Shrine. Whetting my appetite for a three week visit to Sri Lanka in January.
