Construction at Ramanasramam


A construction project has started at Sri Ramanasramam that will affect guest room availability until late in 2012. About 40% of the guest rooms are involved. Ramanasramam Management asks that, during this period, if you wish to stay at Ramanasramam, you write or email them at least 2 months in advance, and plan to stay at the ashram for only a few days at a time. To stay in Tiruvannamalai for longer periods you may need to make use of the many good guest houses or hotels.

Here is information from Ramanasramam about booking accommodations.

Across the street from Ramanasramam there is a compound that previously housed the library and a number of guest rooms.


Now there is heavy machinery working to tear down the buildings. 

Some are demolished already. These were very old. New guest housing units will be constructed.  


On the Ashram grounds, behind the dining hall, a new library building is under construction.


You can see that it will be a round building with multiple floors. It will be very good to have the library on the Ramanasramam grounds. This will greatly increase the availability of the books at the library to visitors.


Ramanasramam continues to work to improve their facilities. More people each year visit Tiruvannamalai just to come to Ramanasramam. The Ashram Management is to be commended for their good work in providing first rate facilities so that devotees of Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi can have a peaceful and spiritually rich experience when they come here.

    very useful news spread by mr richard. All devotees who frequent should help The Asram officers to keep the visit requirements to minimum to faciliate construction. On namo bhagavathe Ramanaya

    I am glad at the effort to improve the facilities.
    I’m wondering if there’s a subdivision(s) for retirees/spiritual seekers around Ramanashramam. Are there a lot of spiritual seekers like you, Richard (both Indian and non-Indian), who’ve come to live in Tiruvannamalai?

      There is a community of western seekers who have come to life here, due to Arunachala and Ramanasramam. This community is one thing that now makes it pretty easy for those such as us.
