A Nice town on the Indian East Coast

A little town on the eastern sea board , Pondicherry was a French colony.The old town is a replica of a tiny French town.Auroville and the Ashram are the two most important sights here.

The streets in old town are so beautiful.The houses and other buildings are mostly coloured in pastel shades.

    Nice pictures and insight into the French colonial past. I only saw the Western side of India and the old Portugese colonies in Goa.

    Having such a British past, I'd have never imagined there would be a statue of Joan of Arc ANYWHERE in India. Very interesting peek at another corner of India. :)
