Pondicherry

Been there recently?

Pondicherry, renamed Puducherry, was a French settlement until 1954. The French and Indian cultures have merged beautifully in this Union Territory, which is part of the Tamil Nadu state in southern India. Pondicherry has an exotic feel thanks to its old Bougainvillaea-draped French-style homes, churches, colonial buildings, seafront promenades, spiritual havens, tree-lined boulevards, undiscovered and pristine beaches, charming backwaters, newly constructed French-style shops, and vibrantly coloured cafes and restaurants.Along with fine pottery, handmade paper, leather, and aromatics, it is also renowned for its textiles, silk, and traditional doll-making. Puducherry is a sort of treasure trove for people who enjoy spending time in nature. It is a place with beaches, a long history, and a spiritual awakening. The food, however, is what makes visitors want to stay forever. The cuisine in this place is an eccentric synthesis of French culinary sensibilities, South Indian spices, and Italian eccentricity. The city is home to hundreds of eateries, from chai stands selling hot buns to opulent hotels that prepare sumptuous spreads for their visitors.

The seafront is home to a number of notable structures, including the war memorial, the Joan of Arc statue, an old lighthouse, a statue of Mahatma Gandhi, the town hall, the remains of the customs house, an old pier, Ashrams nursing home, and a hospital.

Along the Cuddalore Main Road, about 8 kilometres from the city, is the exclusive Paradise Beach. The beach is well-maintained and is only reachable by boat from the Chunnambar Resorts. Getting to the beach itself is one of the best experiences; the ferry ride across the backwaters provides beautiful views of the mangrove forests.
Sri Aurobindo Ashram
Sri Aurobindo Ashram is a well-known spiritual retreat, and Puducherry is widely known for Sri Aurobindo and his teachings. Mother Mirra and Sri Aurobindo both lived at the ashram during the course of their lives. It was established in 1926. One of the richest ashrams in the nation, it is situated on Rue de la Marine and is regarded as a synthesis of the spiritual knowledge of yoga and contemporary science. The samadhi, a white marble shrine where Sri Aurobindo and the Mother were laid to rest, is located in the centre of the structure. Visitors are welcome to spend as much time as they like sitting by the samadhi and practising meditation, as well as perusing the selection of books on Sri Aurobindo and Auroville that are available here.
