Sri Ramana Ashram
Sri Ramana Ashram information
This tranquil ashram, 2km southwest of the centre in green grounds filled with peacocks, draws devotees of Sri Ramana Maharshi, one of the first Hindu gurus to gain an international following, who died here in 1950 after half a century in contemplation. Visitors can meditate or attend daily pujas (prayers) and chantings, mostly in the samadhi hall where the guru's body is enshrined.
A limited amount of free accommodation (donations accepted; three to four weeks) is available for devotees only: write or email a month ahead.
