A City With No Money No Cars No Religion No Politics And Nationality Doesn't Matter Meet Auroville

Auroville, often known as 'the City of Dawn,' is an international township in India's south. The township is intended to be a non-political, non-religious worldwide community.

We decided that the experiment was a success after looking at all of Anne Schonharting's colorful and stunning photographs.

Matrimandir is Auroville's geographical and spiritual centre. It's a temple dedicated to meditation and yoga. Matrimandir is devoid of any religious affiliation.

However, if you believe that life in Auroville is a never-ending vacation, you are mistaken. Everyone has a task to complete.

The primary goal of education in Auroville is to provide a kid with the opportunity to develop, mature, and achieve their full potential. The main focus is on physical activity and the development of their creative abilities.

This municipality is devoid of automobiles. A motorcycle is their primary mode of transportation.

Auroville is home to almost 2,000 people from 45 different nations.

Auroville is a pilot project to create a large ecovillage where people from all over the world can live in peace and love. They gradually establish their ideal environment.Since the city is still existing, it proves that this project was an absolute success!

Auroville wants to be a universal town where men and women of all countries are able to live in peace and progressive harmony, above all creeds, all politics and all nationalities. The purpose of Auroville is to realize human unity.

Residents of Auroville are expected to contribute a monthly contribution to the community. They are asked to help the community whenever possible by work, money, or kind. The "guest contribution", or a daily fee paid by the guests of Auroville, constitutes a part of Auroville's budget. There is a system of "maintenance", whereby those Aurovilians in need can receive from the community monthly maintenance which covers simple basic needs of life. Auroville's economy and its overall life are of an evolving nature and there are ongoing experiments to reach closer to the vision
