TravelPod Member ReviewsMaison Perumal Pondicherry
as with all CGH Earth sites this one excells in homely comforts and personal touches. Well appointed rooms are smaller than in most of the CGH Earth hotels but with lofty ceilings and simple furniture, tastefully chosen, the effect is spacious. Menus are a bit restricted but anything can be obtained just by asking. That goes for food, help, shopping, and local knowledge. We caught up on some late shopping, watched a festival, chatted about the virtues of Kerelan food versus Chettinad cuisine and came away feeling refreshed and ready for the world

... visit to this place to this unimaginable space really took us to the summit of our sensory experiences so far, and we loved every second of it.
The lights flickered, and that was the signal that this was the time to move on, so we were reluctantly led back down, not quite knowing what the last hours or had really been all about, a dream, an illusion, part of the cult of Auroville’s brainwashing techniques – who cares, it was fabulous! We were allowed some ...
This morning we left our environmental, Eco-friendly, sense of community, 'come for the place, stay for the spirit' hotel and headed for the Bay of Bengal on the east coast of India and the 'state' of Pondicherry. Still only guests here so got great service at breakfast. Staff were surprised when we declined the eggs and asked for a Dosa and Uttapham instead. Travelled through small villages surrounded by rice paddies on atrocious roads. Lots of the surrounding ...
... also chained and had a guy sitting on top of it with a hook. I didn't go inside the temple but Kaete did. She said it was nice and there were a lot of beautiful statues inside. After this we walked back down to the beach and sat by the water for a little while. During this time I googled the ancient palm leaf scrolls that Marc is insisting I go to. Somewhere in India is my scroll which was written over 2000 years ago and has my destiny on it. Ok I am a little intrigued, but it could ...
... by his following of Sri Aurobindo, an Indian guru who was joined by a companion known to the followers as The Mother. There are shrines in all Aravind buildings to these two, alongside pictures of Dr. V himself. Aurobindo mostly wrote about being true to yourself and doing the best that you can whilst you are alive through your everyday actions (like your work); some beautiful poetry and philosophy actually. The Mother seemed to take these teachings to a whole new hippy ...
The walk to the Matirmandir and the old banyan tree near it is one kilometre. The temple appears from a distance in the green and it is a magnificent sight. Unfortunately tourists are not allowed in anymore. Chris has been here at least 10 times because he was interested in the architecture and how it developed. It has been built with an opening in the roof through which the sun falls in a creation way.
The renowned ...
