You’ll have all day to explore Puttaparthi with its the temples and religious centers which include a small zoo, museums, and a planetarium. At the ashram (religious center), encounter the many followers who call Puttpaparthi “the City of the Godman." This village grew in popularity after becoming the home of the Indian guru and fakir, Sri Sathya Sai Baba. Believed by many to be a miracle worker and the reincarnation of a previous guru, “the Godman” is a religious leader with an enormous following. He teaches the unity of all major world religions and the importance of five basic values: truth, righteous conduct, peace, love, and non-violence. |
At the lower end of the village, fertile lands dot the countryside with stretches of well-irrigated fields and farms. Discover the rural lifestyle still practiced here—where daily life goes on, seemingly untouched by the activities of the ashram.
