Matrimandir, which is the Sanskrit word for 'Temple of The Mother', is the most important edifice of the Auroville township in Pondicherry. Located just in the middle of Auroville in a large open area known as 'Peace', Matrimandir is fondly known as the 'soul of the city' and holds crucial spiritual significance for those who practice Integral Yoga.
Popular as the golden globe of Pondicherry, it is a place for individual silent concentration. You can visit Matrimandir from inside. Matrimandir is no tourist place, and the entry inside the central premises of the building is allowed only to those who have a brief understanding of the idea of Auroville township. However, the beautiful gold dome structure of the Matrimandir, which is surrounded by twelve lush green gardens, attracts the tourists visiting Pondicherry. A viewpoint has been constructed to the south of the building which offers a panoramic view of the Matrimandir and its surroundings. The viewpoint is just 10 minutes' walk away from the Visitor's Centre.
