  1. You can’t visit Auroville in one day. You have to go personally to register & visit next day. Strange !!!

  2. Been there and had a great time. Stayed at villa La serenity with my family. An independent villa. Check my youtube account to know more about the place. Two days are just fine and its convenient if you drive there. Easy to go about but very narrow roads. Most of the roads have barricades i dont understand why. At the same time the heat is a bit difficult to handle.
