Places to Visit in puducherry

Owing to the French rule in the city till 1954, Puducherry exuberates an old world charm that smoothly merges with its bohemian vibe. While the old part of the former French colony is systematically lined with Colonial-era townhouses and a cobblestoned, labyrinth of streets, the newer part of the city is traditionally South Indian. Home to the famous Sri Aurobindo Ashram, spiritually inclined visitors from all over the world visit Puducherry throughout the year. Known primarily for French food, beer, and its tranquil beaches, anyone who visits Puducherry once wants to keep coming back to it time and again.
