    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.

    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.

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

    The beach is hardly 500 Mtrs from the railway station but a bit far from the bus station. One is not allowed to swim in any of the beaches in pondicherry unlike Goa.

    NOTE
    1) Come early morning or evening for a walk
    2) French colonial vibe is more interesting than the beach itself
    3) Autos are costly
    4) KBS is a good place to have some tea/coffee/snacks/cakes etc at budget friendly price

    This is probably the closest beach to Auroville, but unlike Goan beaches, one can not swim here. One can just sit and relax in peace with no shops and food around..

    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.

    Note, the gardens are currently closed whilst maintenance takes place. Current signage says closure is from 12/02/24 to 30/09/24.

    I have been coming back here since 2015. It is so efficient against back pain, from the very first treatment. The doctor is a wonderful lady. The centre director is also amazing. The therapists are extremely professional. Beautiful place. I think that 5 stars are not enough.

    Domus is an intriguing shop, with a lovely restaurant in an inner garden. Terrific lunch salads and beverages. A perfect place to take a breather.

    I’d like to begin by saying that I had an amazing time diving with the folks at Temple Adventures!

    I had planned to do my Open Water and Advanced Open Water Diver course with Mr Shaveer Patel in October 2023. We had a few conversations over call and decided to do it my December. Though it was a long wait, I’m glad to say that it was definitely worth it. Shaveer was very patient throughout the training period, ensuring we were comfortable each step of the way. He was ready to answer any questions and made sure we enjoyed what we were learning. I’m very grateful for that.

    Overall, the folks at Temple Adventures were warm and welcoming making my first solo trip to Pondicherry memorable :)

    This was my first Scuba dive and had a memorable feeling for my life. The whole team was very professional and friendly starting from training till they dropped us at the shore. Special thanks to Akash, Elan and Bipin for patiently explaining on dos and don'ts for Scuba. Thanks to Elan for clicking wonderful pictures underwater. 40mins of my dive felt as if I was back to boat in 5 mins and craved for more dives like this.

    I am so glad I did this. Wiuth our super friendly, knowledgable guide Manisha, we cycled a couple of hours in the early hours of the morning before the traffic was too bad, and explored the various areas of Pondiceherry. It really was a great way to see the city, and at the same time get some much needed exercise!

    A big thanks to Sita Cultural centre, and Lakhsmi and Manisha!
