South Indian spiritualism meets French chic in Pondicherry, an interesting, unusual, and international destination on the Bay of Bengal.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Gingee Fort and Varadaraja Perumal Temple. Arulmigu Manakula Vinayagar Temple and Descent Of The Ganges will appeal to history buffs.
