About Puducherry

Puducherry, located about 160km from Chennai, was the largest French colony in India, and still retains its French legacy in the form of its heritage architecture, restaurants, the riviera and the French Quarter - the part of town that has preserved its French character. 

For the traveller, Puducherry offers its impressive coastline, the historic cathedrals and basilicas to admire, the spiritual centre of Auroville, and a leisurely pace that's very much in demand nowadays.
