Puducherry (Pondicherry) holidays

The charming seaside town of Puducherry (Pondicherry) is a former French colony settled in the early 18th century. Even though the French relinquished control of Pondicherry nearly 40 years ago, there are still hints of their previous ownership everywhere from the Tricolore fluttering over the grand French Consulate and numerous restaurants serving authentic French cuisine, to visitors occasionally hearing French being spoken on the streets.
