Athithi Ashram

The Athithi Ashram, which is located on the southside of Arunachala and about 3 minutes walk from Ramana Ashram, is not as well known as some of the other local ashrams, however accommodation is available to visitors and pilgrims.

Over the last couple of years some new accommodation areas have been added at the front of the ashram, which comprise more modern facilities. Food is available at this ashram as is also the use of a Meditation Hall and library. Its location is very good and set in a peaceful area whilst also being close to all necessary facilities.

The granite stone building is the original accommodation area of the ashram.

I climbed to the second floor of the granite building and took this photograph from the balcony looking down into the compound.

J'ai passé 3 nuits dans cet ashram,
très rudimentaire avec le stricte nécessaire mais cela vaut la peine d'aller ressentir l'énergie de Dévotion et d'Amour qui surpasse tout. Merci. Anna Maria

very rudimentary with the strictly necessary but it is worth going to feel the energy of devotion and love which surpasses all. Thank you. Anna Maria
