The highlights include a visit to Aurobindo Ashram, which is dedicated to Sri Aurobindo Ghosh the philosopher and revolutionary, French heritage walk and  the lovely esplanade beside the Bay of Bengal. A visit to the Aurobindo paper factory is an experience about how the paper is produced from cotton rags and then processed with techniques like silk screen printing and marbling. The tour ends with
Auroville the global village where guests will experience the novel concept of a global village where thousands of people from across the world have given up their nationalities and are living as global citizens
