A small coastal city and former French colony steeped in a history of trade and war, today the Union Territory of Puducherry (formerly Pondicherry) offers a tranquil trip to the past. French architecture, beaches, classical statues, an experimental 1960s harmony township, and an important ashram all make excellent additions to a Puducherry itinerary. A stretch of 18th-century colonial mansions along tree-lined boulevards displays unmistakable French influence, while other attractions include the city's 32 churches and an early 19th-century lighthouse. Puducherry's lower tax on alcoholic beverages makes it a popular weekend escape, and one of the most touristic destinations in South India. Try the steak and wine, served everywhere. Use our India route planner to arrange your visit to Pondicherry and any other destinations in India that take your fancy.
