Pondicherry, alias Puducherry and fondly called Pondy is place with dual characters - one the relic of french colonial India, two the paradise for drink aficionados.
The secret combination of Pondy that makes tourist flock around Pondicherry tour packages, likewise the Pondicherry honeymoon packages and Pondicherry spiritual trips is the right blend of spirituality, a bit of France and the alchohol.
This place was also seen by the regimes of almost all key empires, starting with Pallavas till 4th Century, Cholas till 11th century, Pandyas till 13th century, Vijayanagar till 16th century before finally been taken over by the French around 17th century.
As a typical south Indian beach destination, Pondicherry offers a myriad surprises to the tourists in the form of many colonial buildings, churches, temples, and statues which, combined with the systematic town planning and planned French style avenues, still preserve much of the colonial ambiance.
Key places of interest in Ponduicherry include Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Auroville, Promenade Beach, Gandhi Statue and St Louis Street.
