is a place which forms an instant hold over a traveller’s heart. Owing to its colonial past a distinct French imprint resides on every part of this petite town situated on the Coromandels. Famous for its manicured architecture and layout the town has a host of attractions; art galleries, cafes, antique shops, historical buildings and beaches. Yet Pondicherry can spring a pleasant surprise for an unsuspecting traveller ambling into the Tamil Quarter of town.
It is in the Tamil Quarter of Pondicherry the suave west and the tangy east together to form a unique cultural mix. The Tamil Quarter stands in a sharp contrast to the genteel French Quarter; displaying the usual hustle and bustle of a typical Indian town.
