South Indian spiritualism meets French chic in Pondicherry, an interesting, unusual, and international destination on the Bay of Bengal. The eastern side of town displays a richness of French colonial-era architecture, with tree-lined cobblestoned streets lined by a number of old churches and townhouses. Many of the old district's buildings now house cafes, restaurants, and galleries, with a thread of Gallic style and culture running through the aged alleys and the international crowd that lives here. A number of famous ashrams represent some of the key places to visit in Pondicherry, offering some of the country's top Westerner-oriented meditation and yoga retreats. Our India visit planner allows you to schedule your trip to Pondicherry, learn about its attractions, and find out about where else to go during your holiday.
