South Indian spiritualism meets French chic in Pondicherry, an interesting, unusual, and international destination on the Bay of Bengal. The eastern side of town displays a richness of French colonial-era architecture, with tree-lined cobblestoned streets lined by a number of old churches and townhouses. Many of the old district's buildings now house cafes, restaurants, and galleries, with a thread of Gallic style and culture running through the aged alleys and the international crowd that lives here. A number of famous ashrams represent some of the key places to visit in Pondicherry, offering some of the country's top Westerner-oriented meditation and yoga retreats. In the build up to your vacation in Pondicherry, plan trip itinerary minutiae using the visitor reviews, staff write-ups, and custom search fields on our India itinerary planner.
