Visit Pondicherry

Introduction

Pondicherry is best known as the former capital of France's India colony - a Gallic enclave of whitewashed 18th century homes with walled gardens and bougainvillea.

The beachside French quarter of the ‘Ville Blanche' is full of clean and clear streets, a stark contrast to the bustling Indian market town across the canal.

Many visitors are drawn to the city's renowned Auroville ashram.
