Asirvanam Benedictine retreat centre is one of the oldest retreat centres in Bangalore. When we came to Kengeri in 1957 many people requested us to have a retreat house so that they could come and stay with monks and pray.
The Community of Asirvanam is a community of Benedictine monks striving to live a simple and genuine and full monastic life according to the Rule of St. Benedict . As members of The Benedictine Congregation of the Annunciation, we seek to remain faithful to our authentic tradition continually revitalized by the Holy Spirit.
