The very famous nearby station is Villupuram JN. their are many trains which have a destination point upto here.

The easy but quite uncomfortable route is to take train up-to Chennai Central(MAS) and from their public transports Buses and Taxis from the railway station itself directly to Pondicherry.

The most Holy place you will find throughout pondicherry,
The Sri Aurobindo Ashramis a well known and wealthy ashram in India. with devotees from India and all over the world flocking to it for spiritual salvation.

The Arulmigu Manakula Vinayagar Temple,Pondicherry
It is one of the tourist attraction Temple of pondicherry.the place where the temple has built up is given by Sri Aurobindo Ashram and it is very near to the Samadhi(Ashram).
Sri Manakula Vinayagar Temple was in existence before the French came and settled in Pondicherry i.e. before 1666. According to Sasthra, Lord GANESHA is named in 16 types based on his various forms out which this god facing the east cost near Bay of Bengal it has been named as Bhuvaneshar Ganapathy, now called as Manakula Vinayagar.
In Tamil 'Manal' means sand and 'Kulam' means pond near the sea, earlierly which was full of sand around pond. So the people called the god as Manal Kulathu Vinayagar [means God near the pond of sand]. Later it is named as MANAKULA VINAYAGAR.

Auroville (City of Dawn) is an experimental township which is situated 8 km north-west of Pondicherry in East Coast Road. It was founded in 1968 by Mirra Richard (also known as The Mother), the spiritual collaborator of Sri Aurobindo.

Auroville was designed by the French architect Roger Anger. Auroville is meant 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.

During the inauguration ceremony of Auroville on 28 February 1968, soil from 124 countries was placed in a lotus-shaped urn and mixed to symbolize universal oneness. The Government of India and UNESCO has endorsed the project.In the middle of the town is the MATRIMANDIR, which has been acclaimed as "an outstanding and original architectural achievement.It was conceived by Alfassa as "a symbol of Universal Mother".

The community is divided up into neighborhoods withEnglish,Sanskrit,French and Tamil names like Aspiration, Arati, La Ferme, and Isaiambalam.
