The Sri Aurobindo Ashram, located on Rue de la Marine was founded by Sri Aurobindo and the Mother in 1926 for those who sought the spiritual life and were drawn by their philosophy. The Ashram mainly refers to the main Ashram building where the Samadhi (mausoleum) of both the spiritual leaders is. The institution has facilities all around the town; these buildings are gray and often have a distinct appearance, adding to the city a unique flavor. While a lot of the facilities are private but along with visiting the Samadhi, the visitors are allowed to visit some facilities and even be on tour around the facilities and get a glimpse of the life in the Ashram.

Sri Aurobindo Ashram is not only a unique spiritual institution of great importance but also is a melting pot of several nationalities, identities, and cultures as devotees across the globe visit the Ashram.
