About Pondicherry

Pondicherry a Union Territory of India and the former capital of French territories in India was established in 1674 by Francois Martin. The town lies on the coast of Tamil Nadu. Its ancient history dates back to the Vedic era; the Romans traded here and so the Dutch and Danish, but it was the French – who purchased the town in the late 17th century, only relinquishing their hold in in 1954. Pondicherry was originally divided by a canal. The town is laid out in a grid pattern, with parallel streets cutting across each other at right angles. The Tamil name is (Puducherry), which means 'New Town' and it is also known as 'The French Riviera of the East'. Puducherry is one of the most popular tourist spots for national and international tourists.
