If you intend to visit Auroville, you need to take an appointment 2 days in advance, Otherwise you are just wasting your time going there. Only people with prior appointment can enter the Matrimandir. Rest of the visitors will not even get to go close to the building. you will have to see it from a distance of around 250 mts. You will have to walk around 1 to 1.5kms from the parking area. Women,kids and aged can avail the buggy facility. Inspite of the buggy you will have to walk around half a km just to see the structure from a distance. There's a video room that plays the interiors of the Matrimandir. This place is basically for meditation. Its a very good place if you want to experience silence and peace and meditate provided you book a slot in advance.
Personally, I would go to Goa than Pondi.
