Auroville is a unique place conducting a very special experiment. We ask all those who visit Arka, and Auroville, to take the time to make themselves aware of its unique purpose.
Auroville wants 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 realise human unity.

Arka Wellness Center

Arka, ‘meaning Ray of Light,’ is a holistic centre which aims to foster health, growth, and
progress on all levels — the key to remaining young regardless of one’s age.

Arka includes a Wellness Center offering therapies, classes, workshops, and events.
It also has a Guest House and serves health food as part of its Kitchen cuisine.


Arka’s activities aim to integrate all ages so all can benefit from the contact and exchange opportunities provided. Arka is open to all Aurovilians and visiting guests.
