About Pondicherry

Pondicherry (now officially called Puducherry) is a delight for history lovers as well as nature enthusiasts.

Stretching along the Bay of Bengal, Pondicherry draws visitors with its beautiful beaches, colonial architecture, and Indo-French culture. The colonial history of Pondicherry can be traced back to 1674 when the city came under French control. It was then that the French East India Company established a colony here.

It was finally transferred back to India after the country gained independence. A unique mix of old-world charm and modern aesthetics, Pondicherry makes for an ideal weekend getaway. A walk around the old town area will take you past Colonial-era buildings covered in bougainvillaea—a truly mesmerising sight. The old town is also a delight for shopping enthusiasts and food lovers.
