Three Core Documents

The Universal Township project of Auroville was inaugurated on 28th February 1968, when young people representing 124 countries and all the Indian States placed a handful of earth from their home lands in a marble-clad urn near the centre of Auroville, in a gesture symbolising the creation of a town dedicated to human unity and international understanding.
