About the property

5 Bedroom, 5.5 Bathroom, Sleeps 10

Ingadi: the garden, sits at the foot of the sacred mountain Arunachala. This beautiful retreat consists of a main house and two cottages integrated in an exquisite garden which runs inside and outside of the houses connecting one to the other and creating a perfect indoor outdoor experience open to the sounds of the nature and India beyond.

Ingadi can accommodate 2- 10 people comfortably and 14 with a bit of communal coziness. The main house sits in the middle of the property with a shaded, ozone cleaned pool in front of it. It consists of two bedrooms with on suite half bathrooms. One of these bedrooms has its own downstairs living area which can also sleep another 2 people perfect for a family with kids or groups with shared living options. The shower room with attached steam room open to an outdoor shower tucked under the frangipani trees, this room serves as the bath house for all residence in the main house and is made private with black sliding glass doors for the ultimate bath experience. A private walkway takes guests to a studio cottage at the back of the property, consisting of bedroom with bathroom on suite. In the front of the property is a one bedroom guest cottage with garden bathroom and fully equipped kitchen.

Ingadi being fully staffed can offer a personal entry into India for first timers. From local cuisine available home cooked style, to assistance with shopping, laundry and even someone to help you learn your way around the town or suggest places of interest, Senthil our manager lives on sight, speaks great English and can arrange almost anything.Scooters are available for rent with Ramana Ahsram a five minute drive away and the main town and its Vast fire temple no more than 15 minutes drive.

We have three house dogs beautifully trained who lay around most of the time in a silent meditation or follow Senthil around with his chores. The house being so open makes it difficult to keep them entirely out the way but we are sure they will be no bother.

Truly a retreat within a retreat Ingadi offers a western standard: reverse osmosis treating ALL the water on the property, hot water showers, a steam room and mosquito netting throughout. Fast speed internet available in the main house and A/C in select areas.

About owner/property manager

I arrived in Tiruvannamalai in 2001 and never really left. I brought my children to live here in 2002 and began to build a home soon after. Ingadi was completed in 2009 by which point my daughters had moved back to the US. I now live between here and a farm in the Hudson valley in the north east of the US

Why owner/property manager chose Tiruvannamalai

Tiruvannamalai is an extremely auspicious pilgrims town. Built around the mountain of Arunachala which is said to be the manifestation of Shiva, many believers come to walk around the mountain on every full moon as an offering to the Lord Shiva. Ingadi serves as a retreat, with all western services where one can venture out and discover India and return to the quiet seclusion of Ingadi with its sounds of birds and exotic gardens. Being set in the plains of India and being a Shiva destination with our temple being the element of fire, having the luxury of the swimming pool where one can cool off is real treat. Ingadi is set back from the main road circling the mountain and a close walk to the chai shops and sadhus gathering spot by the hanuman temple.
