Serene wonderful place of spirituality...one need to visit such places once in a life time and you need to meditate morning and evening in the holy place after taking off from work for minimum 1week to experience the aura,peace, contentment and joy.... your perspective of life will change in this place.... good books available... Pondicherry is awesome place one should never miss in their lifetime...it has wonderful beaches.... good meditation centres.... good food and weather... especially in September to January......
