“Puducherry” is the French interpretation of the original name “Puducheri” meaning “new settlement”. Many pilgrims have shared the town’s hospitality on their way to the temple town of Rameshwaram, thus enriching its culture.
The colonial past of Puducherry is hard to miss even by the casual walker on the promenade beach. There stands the statue of Francois Dupleix. Not too far away is one of Joan of Arc. It’s a trip down France as one crosses symmetrically aligned streets in Puducherry.
The air is filled with nostalgia and the present is living up to a heritage that speaks so much. A trip from Chennai to Pondicherry is like a journey in time with a vibrant present celebrating its interesting past; its history goes back to before Roman times, but factually started with the arrival of the French in 1673, who founded the town and built it to its present form, during the two and a half century they occupied it.

TIPS FOR TOURISTS
The climate in Pondicherry is generally humid as it is located in the coastal areas of South India. The climate is mostly warm and plain cottons or cotton/synthetic blends are the most practical and the coolest wear in summer. It’s best to avoid thick clothes that don’t ‘breathe’.
In the summer, hats and sunglasses are recommended for protection from the harsh sun. When travelling during monsoons, a collapsible umbrella comes in handy.
During the winter months, sweaters and light jackets are required.
Trekkers and travellers going on any outdoor adventure should bring a daypack that will hold a sweater, camera and a water bottle. A good pair of binocular and sunglasses that blocks out ultraviolet rays are advised. Also carry strong sun blocks, sewing kit, wet wipes, pocketknife with a can opener, lock and key for each duffel or bag, high-power impact-resistant flashlight and spare batteries (unless they’re a popular size). For charging electric-powered equipment, bring a converter and an adapter.
The electrical current is 220 volts, 50 Hz alternating current (AC) and Euro plugs are mostly used for the wall sockets.Pages:
