    A lively spot with some good artwork, this temple has no particular history of note, but it's easy to get to. Probably the only Hindu temple you'll visit in Pondicherry. Nice, but nothing really special.

    It's a road that runs along the waterfront. There are a few parks and statues along the way, but few cafes and restaurants -- a disappointment given the setting. Walk along for 15 minutes and you're done. Quiet, compared to the city.

    One must visit the museum when in pondicherry not because of the architecture but the history behind the man himself. As vivekanand is for kanyakumari, Sri Aurobindo is for Pondicherry.

    This grand church is just opposite the puducherry railway station. One can easily visit this place along with the French colony tour. Grand structure

    This is probably the best and well maintained church in the mid of the French colony in pondicherry. Though average from outside, the inside is gothic and grand. Must visit

    Beautiful temple. Seeing Varadarajan Perumal in such an ancient and divine setting was worthwhile. The temple has colorful sculptures of all the 108 divya desams. One can feel the presence of God in this temple. Must visit when in Pondicherry.

    Pretty church with gorgeous stained glass windows. Worth a stop for a little calm during a busy day shopping. Worth a visit

    We wanted to go to the Paradise Beach so decided to take a boat from Chunambar Boathouse. It was the day of Christmas and extremely crowded. They are charging separately for entry fee (just to enter the area) and separately for boating (for the boat ride to Paradise Beach). Now both the counters had huge queue and will kill your time. A single counter with the two people operating can be some much convenient for the tourists. In addition to that the wait time for the boat ride would kill up another hour. All these for a maximum 20 to 30 minute ride can easily frustrate people.

    The boat ride in itself was very blissful. The beautiful views soothed our eyes and the cool breeze calmed our souls. The ride was definitely a highlight and we really loved the experience.

    You can only see it from outside. We went in the evening for a walk and this place is located on the way. You can see it from distance. Not sure if we will be allowed inside in the morning times.

    This is the place which lists down what all restorations have been done in and around Pondicherry. In a way it takes us back to olden times and shows what Pondicherry really was - a quiet sea side holiday town, long before the excellent connectivity with neighbouring cities transformed it into a weekend holiday destination. The place helps us connect the past of Pondicherry with the present.

    1999 war between India and Pakistan may not be acutely present in minds and memories of the visitors from other continents for whom it was “just a boarder war”. But young soldiers suffered and died. That is why it is good to have this monument present honoring the lost lives of heroes.

    It’s really a beautiful building with French architecture and colors. I had seen this building from outside only and it will definitely catch your attention for sure.
