Amma's Ashram Kerala Reviews
A really different experience Jan 29, 2013
This was an experiement for me and my boyfriend. He wanted to check out an ashram and this was the closest one from where were staying and easy to acess by a kerala backwater's trip.
The ashram was very diferent from what we expected, huge pink buildings, temples and a court yard.
We got a double bedroom, which was extremely cheap, with nice vegetarian food included.
Ama is the lady that became famous for giving hugs and being one of the very rare cases of a female guru.
So, Ama was there by the time we passed by and we got a hug from her. No, we didn't feel enlightned but it was an interesting experience after all.
After 3 days in the Ashram you're expected to help out with volunteer work.
All in al it was interesting, a bit odd at times, but it's part of experiencing the local culture.
Part of the list Hotels I loved, hotels I hated
