Sights in Puducherry
Puducherry has a special vibe, not felt anywhere else in India. It is a blend of spiritual aura, colonial heritage, Tamil culture and the cosmopolitan flair of many nationalities in a small but varied town. This inherent ambience of Pondy becomes most evident in the oldest part of the town which flanks the seashore boulevard.
Puducherry has a wide choice of hotels to choose from: Beach resorts for tourists and families, Heritage hotels for those who want to experience something out of the ordinary, high class commercial hotels for the corporate visitors and the neat Ashram Guest Houses for the spiritual seekers. Restaurants serve a rich variety of French, Indian, Asian and continental food and also has many international chains of fast food.
The nickname "Pondy" sums up this shared feeling of belonging and having come home.
