About Pondicherry

Pondicherry is a union territory located in the southeastern part of India and has been known by three different names: Putucceri – its original name, Pondicherry, and the new one – Puducherry. The name has been derived from the original town Pallathur. Pondicherry is one of the most populous cities in India and the capital city of the Indian Union Territory of Puducherry. It is a good place for enjoying the natural beauties of the Bay of Bengal and the Arabian Sea. Since the city is mostly surrounded by the state of Tamil Nadu, most of the people living here speak Tamil. But some people speak the languages of the nearby states, such as Telugu and Malayalam. English and French are also popular.

The history of Pondicherry starts with the ancient rulers, the Pallavas, from 325 AD. Later this region was included in the kingdom of Chola, Pandya, Vijayanagar, and the Adil Shahi dynasty. Then came the colonial period of the Portuguese (the first Europeans), followed by the French, and later came the British. Pondicherry is popular among tourists because it houses many historical places and natural attractions.
