Auroville is a city in itself. Peaceful like something I have never seen before. This place has something to offer for everyone - Meditation, Boutiques for shopping hand made products, leather workshop, wood workshop, music academy to name a few. I started my visit at Auroville by going to Swaram - a music academy and workshop especially curated to create music out of daily objects. Music lovers would really enjoy and appreciate the concepts adopted here. Each and every instrument has been constructed out of different materials and produces an extremely unique, rhythmic music. I would personally recommend a visit here if you ever happen to visit Auroville. Next, I stopped at the leather workshop where leather goods are created from scratch by local artisans - each one of it beautiful on its own. For individuals seeking Meditation, there is the Matri Mandir which is the epicenter of meditation and peace at Auroville. There are three boutiques in the main complex of Auroville and offers a variety of items on sale such as Hand made paper lamps, cute stationary, paper baskets, chic clothing etc. Some of these products are exclusive to Auroville and can only be purchased from the premises.
