The group..."WE all"..
Day 1

We, 5 members (2 families) have planned suddenly for pondicherry, Tamil Nadu on 23rd of December and next day early morning around 5:30 we have started the trip with our car by road.The road journey was quiet comfortable as road was very smooth for about 5 hours.We were reached there around 11 o'clock.At Christmas time,all the accommodation places were booked,but meantime we were managed to book our stay at OYO Hotel but price was very high compare to normal time.we booked for 1 night as pondy is enough to explore for 1 night 2 days for energetic people like us.After checked-in we spent some time for refreshment.Around 1 o'clock we have started car wheel on road to explore lists of spot which was marked on for this trip.

Matrimandir, Aurovile:

Our first priority on lists was Auroville, Matrimandir, significance of spiritual and healing power of earth.Such a peaceful place i never seen in my life .on the way to ashram we stopped for lunch.There was many options for foods as many cafes,restaurants are thereby. Restaurant took more than 2 hours to serve the foods as the time was proper lunch hour and heavy crowd for Christmas season.Its around 4 o 'clock we booked passes for entry to ashram.From parking place to Matrimandir around 1 km walking.The overall experience of walking is very exciting as the roads are beautiful covering by lush green trees and garden.so we can walk as well as take photography.After reaching to ashram,we got to know that we could not enter the temple as entry time is restricted.But truly speaking we haven't offended at all because the view was so much peaceful,it touches our heart.Its a Golden temple surrender by greenary park where meditation goes on.It is worthy to spend some time at view point to healing and calmness of mind.There are bus service from the centre of matrimandir for return time if anyone want to avail to avoid again 1 km walking.
