Individual Stay

Vasanta Vihar, part of Krishnamurti Trust Madras (headquarters of the Krishnamurti Foundation India), exists for the sole purpose of enabling people to stay here to study Krishnamurti’s Teachings by using the library (The Study), or taking part in retreats and dialogues, or engaging in informal conversations or quiet reflection.

Therefore, it is expected that guests do not engage in official work outside, social get-togethers, or sight-seeing.


The following guidelines need to be strictly followed:

Your presence on the campus during your stay, and punctuality at all meals, are expected.

Use cell phones only in your rooms, and not in The Study, Retreat venues, Dining Hall, and other common areas on the campus.

Clothes such as shorts or mini-skirts outside your room are considered inappropriate.

A minimum of 3 nights’ stay is expected. Guests can extend their stay if they wish to.

Kindly note the following:

* Single/Double non-AC rooms with attached bath are provided

* Guests are requested to bring their own towel and soap.

* Safeguard your passport, money and other valuables, and lock your room during your absence.

Per night cost: Rs. 750 (inclusive of taxes) per head. This includes accommodation and food. Payment can be made on arrival.
