  • Description


    We are an Indo-American couple who built a beautiful sanctuary in our 30 acre farm outside of Ayodhya, India. Our lives have been so blessed by hosting fellow travellers over the years. The space has been made beautiful through so many contributions and we have evolved so much through all the stories and sharing.

    We work towards making the earth more sustainable. I develop and produce compostable packaging and my wife is an author and fabric artist (amongst many other things!). We have three beautiful girls and 2 wonderful dogs :)

    We now spend most of our time in Portland, US but I am back at the farm every couple of months. Our wonderful friend Zuby is based on the farm and is ensuring that we continue to share the richness of this space with as many travellers as we possibly can.

    Our farm is mainly a mango and lychee orchard and we also have a large pond where we are working on growing foxnuts. We are looking to work more with nature and convert the property towards permaculture and natural farming.

    Come and be in the space to rest your weary (travel) bones and contribute with your talents. We look forward to your energy.
