Ashok Tree

Ashok Tree is located in Tiruvannamalai, the home of Swami Ramana Maharshi and many Siddhas. Ashok Tree is nestled in rural surroundings and spans over 13-acres with a variety of trees in the orchard and across the property, flowers, plants, vegetation and wildlife. You will experience breath-taking views of sunrises over the holy mountain of Arunachala and sunsets over the hills. Ashok Tree is away from pollution, hustle & bustle, tucked away in farmland within nature and the precious wide-open spaces. Ashok Tree grows its own vegetables or they are collected from local farms to utilise seasonal produce, promote natural living and enjoy healthy food.

There are many places to walk, meditate, chill out and reconnect with your inner child. You can help out in our community project, orchard, vegetable garden, help with the animals or relax in a hammock under a tree.
