    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.

    Its a nice hangout for an evening walk besides an esplanade. There are a lot of food joints as well.

    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.

    Just any other status this Marques duplex is also not maintained to its fullest form but as you go through the history of that concerned person you will find why his statue is remarkable to its existence.!

    Jeanne d'Arc from poor Domremy is in poorer habitation, imprisoned in a neglected park. The Maid of Orleans was burned at the stake by the English because she wore men's clothes. In Pondy she faces the Indian sun and battles against the ever salty sea breeze and suffocating humidity. In French history and culture she is an iconic figure, symbolizing freedom of spirit, valor, and love of France. Venerated as a saint by the Catholics, she exudes confidence, simplicity, peasant-like humility and no-nonsense demeanor. There is a sense of sacredness and she is untainted by the hordes who have no sense of what is hallowed within the enclosure. The Capuchins are reported to be in charge of her keep.

    The statue of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, located along the Promenade, is a good spot for views, clicks and selfies.
