Pondicherry is a quiet little town located on the Coromandel Coast of the Bay of Bengal, at a distance of about 162 km. to the south of Chennai (Madras). Having remained the capital of the French colonies in India for quite some time since the 17th century, Pondicherry has managed to retain its French aura and the rich cultural heritage as is clearly evident through its well-planned roads, wide and vibrant beaches, tree- lined boulevards, colonial heritage buildings, and the spiritual scene.
