The first Auroville community was based on a particular spirit, following a design appropriate to Sri Aurobindo’s integral yoga. Pondicherry is a seaside town where the French influence can still be seen in its architecture, street names, and local language. Yet Tamil architectural styles can also be found there. This guidebook includes four Auroville itineraries structured around the experimental township’s master plan, which is divided into four zones. A fifth itinerary is located in Auromodele, which is outside the main part of the city. Likewise, three Pondicherry itineraries correspond with the city’s three main geographical zones: French Quarter, Tamil Quarter, and suburban areas.
