Pondicherry is a city and capital of the Pondicherry union territory of Southern India . Pondicherry located on the Coromandel Coast of the Bay of Bengal is known across the globe for its interwoven charm of spiritual aura, French colonial heritage,

Tamil culture and the cosmopolitan flair of many nationalities. It was a former French colony which became one of the Union Territories of India after independence. Tourists from across the globe come here to spend their vacations in the serene and scenic ambiances of pristine nature.


Pondicherry, recently renamed as Puducherry . Though very small, Pondicherry was the largest French colony in India. The city has a long and interesting history of trade and war. Among its diverse attractions are a coastline of 32 kms, palm-fringed beaches, backwaters, fishing villages, beach resorts, the Sri Aurobindo Ashram, the international city of Auroville, the French boulevard town with its French heritage, and so on. Some great food, some fine wine, and a great adventure await you here.

Pondicherry is a great place to look around, take a walk by the sea, attend a cultural program. It is also known as The French Riviera of the East . If you've spent some time in Tamil Nadu and approached Pondicherry by land, you'll very likely experience mild culture shock on discovering elegant French architecture and restaurants serving steak and good wine. Pondicherry is very much a city with a dual personality: crossing from East to West of the central canal reveals two cities with very different characters. Those who feel in need of a break from India will enjoy the taste of French culture there, and the relaxed atmosphere. Pondicherry's Sri Aurobindo Ashram attracts plenty of spiritual seekers. There are plenty of glorious churches, temples, and gardens to see as well. Beach Road, bordered by the Bay of Bengal and a long stretch of hotels and restaurants, is the most happening part of the city
