Guided Tour activities in Puducherry (Pondicherry)
Fine handmade paper is sold here, and you can ask at the counter about tours of the factory. There’s a wider choice of goods at Auroboutique near the ashram; all sales support ashram work.
The Puducherry tourist office runs half-day sightseeing tours that take you to the water sports complex at Chunnambar, Hanuman temple, Auroville and Sri Aurobindo Ashram. Full-day tours cover the same area plus the botanical gardens, paper factory, sacred Heart Church and a couple of Hindu temples; both tours need a minimum of six people to operate.
