The Matrimandir and its garden. Auroville, "the city of Dawn", an experimental, ideal, universal city, was born from a dream of Mirra Alfassa, named "The Mother", and of Sri Aurobindo. It was inaugurated in 1968, welcomes people from all over the world, sharing the desire to achieve human unity. The Matrimandir, this gigantic golden ball is a place of meditation for a new consciousness, and radiates from the center of the city. Here, a morning greeting in front of the sphere.
