Bharathi Park This park right in the centre of the city is known for its lush greenery and pristine white Aayi mandap (a tribute to lady courtesan Aayi for her benevolence). Take a leisurely stroll here. God's own From the blissful Manakular Vinayagar with its glorious temple elephant to French masses at Our Lady of Angels church near the beach, this little town is filled with ancient churches and temples. White town The area around the Pondicherry rock beach is known for its beautiful mix of French and Tamil architecture. Walk down this zone or take one of Pondy's famous cycle tours and soak in the rich heritage of the former French colony. Auroville & Aurobindo Ashram Auroville is an experimental town that promotes universal peace. You can see many foreigners coming here to seek the higher truth. It's a great place to volunteer for green practices like forestation, water conservation etc. One can also choose to meditate at the Aurobindo Ashram or inside the Auroville dome. Arikamedu This archaeological site will take you to the times when ancient Romans traded with India. .

Pichavaram Pichavaram mangrove forest, the third largest in the world is 57 kms from Pondicherry, a boat ride here will leave you mesmerised. It's a bird watcher's paradise. Gingee fort Known as the Troy of the East, this fort built by the Nayaks in the 16th century is located atop three hillocks. This site is located 77 Krns from Pondicheny and is a must-visit for history buffs. Beach The famous rock aka Promenade beach along with its Gandhi statue is known for the beautifully maintained lanes. Though swimming is restricted, a mere walk here will rejuvenate your spirits and is a safe place to stroll even in the nights. Artefacts aplenty Pondicherry is also a shopping paradise - from colonial artefacts, aromatic candles to pottery, make sure you make the best of your stay here. Check out Geetanjali for artefacts, Kalki for home fragrance or visit one of the many pottery shops in Auroville.

Chunnambar & Mudhaliarkuppam While the Chunnambar boating zone is known for the Paradise island where one can gain access via boats; Mudhiliarkuppam is for the adventureseekers, you have amazing water rides even for non-swimmers.
