Pondicherry Tourism & Travel Guide - Know Before you Go!

Pondicherry Overview

Situated at a distance of 153 kilometres from Chennai, Pondicherry or 'Pondi' as it is affectionately known, is the perfect weekend getaway from bustling Chennai. A French colony until 1954, this coast-hugging town, with its French quarter, churches and gardens still preserves much of the colonial ambience. This influence is also obvious in the laid-back air, broad tree-lined boulevards and the French cuisine served in its restaurants.

Local Language

Tamil and French are the two main languages of Pondicherry.
