TARA (Training and Research Academy) is an eco-friendly feminist residential space for retreats, workshops, training, research, and creative expression. TARA’s new and attractive facilities include affordable residential cottages that can comfortably accommodate 30-40 overnight guests, a staffed kitchen and dining hall, three multi-purpose conference halls, library, and organic gardens.
There are four guest cottages with small verandahs that each has four or five bedrooms with attached western-style toilets and hot water geysers.
We have a special guest room that is wheelchair-friendly. And, the dining area and one conference/reception hall are also handicapped accessible.
TARA has wi-fi capability available at no additional charge for its guests. And, there is audio video equipment available for the showing of dvds, PowerPoint presentations, etc.
Comestibles at TARA
We offer simple vegetarian food served family-style at three meals a day, and is inclusive in our room rates. We make our own tofu and, as much as possible, serve produce either from our own gardens or locally grown. We have a small organic farm where we grow vegetables and fruits. We appreciate if visitors give some time to working in the garden.
We have Aqua Guard eco-filtered water available on tap in the dining room. Guests are requested to fill in their bottles to take to their rooms and the training hall as and when they need.

As a nongovernmental organization (NGO),TARA does not charge commercial flat rates for usage of its facilities, but instead asks for donations to defray expenses of operations. For more specific information about Suggested Room Rates and Guest Bookings. .....click here
