Ramana Ashram, also called as the Sri Ramanasraman, is an ashram or a religious institute that has been built on the grounds of what used to be the home of Ramana Maharishi. He was a modern philosopher who lived in the town of Thiruvannamalai from 1922 until 1950.
The Ashram is situated in the foothills of the Arunachala hill towards the west side of Thiruvannamalai district. At the time of the Maharishi’s death in 1950, thousands of his followers had gathered at the place to catch a glimpse of the revered sage before he left for his heavenly abode. Even after his death, many of his followers and curious tourists visit the Ashram.
There is now a shrine dedicated to the Maharishi at the place where he breathed his last. And each year, his followers make it a point to visit the Ashram and spend some time there doing social services.
