Pondicherry is synonymous with French architecture, tree-lined roads, and all that is reminiscent of the slow-paced past. The past here is intensely prevalent. From the war memorials such as the Foyer du Soldat commemorating Indian soldiers who participated in the Second World War to the most breathtaking churches such as the Notre Dame Des Anges, Pondicherry is a walk down the pages of history. Enjoy the heritage walks, take cycle tours or just a casual stroll on the streets; you will have several heritage buildings and establishments to see.

The government takes special care to preserve the heritage of Pondicherry, which above anything, is its most attractive feature. Some buildings and streets have received international recognition, such as the Vaishyal Street, which carries a plaque dating 2008 by UNESCO, celebrating its heritage. The city teems with inconspicuous monuments waiting for you to discover.



Forget the race, visit Pondicherry. A city of bon vivants- heritage, peace, delicious food and memories in store just for you. Come once, you will come again.
