Tourist Attraction in Pondicherry

SRI AUROBINDO ASHRAM - This was founded in 1920 by Sri Aurobindo when Pondicherry was a French colony with the aim of putting in place his ideas of a peaceful community. The ashram was run by Mirra Alfassa, his French companion, universally known as the Mother. The members of the Ashram are allowed to mediate as they wish; there being no rituals, obligatory practices or systematic instruction. The ashram consists of a diversified community with almost1,200 members, of whom 400 are students at the Centre of Education. There are various departments to run the administrative system of the ashram and to cater to the basic needs of its members. It also has farms and gardens, a printing press, libraries as well as a number of small-scale industries. The “samadhi" or tombs of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother are within the precincts of the ashram itself. It is open to all for a fixed number of hours everyday.

PONDICHERRY MUSEUM - The Pondicherry Museum situated in the Government Park has a fine sculpture gallery and a section for archaeological findings dating back to the Roman settlement at Arikamedu. There is also a section which charts the history of the colony under the French. The objects in the museum include a four-poster bed believed to have been slept in by Dupleix. There is also an amazing collection of snail shells from the region surrounding Pondicherry.

- This lovely beach with a 1.5-km-long promenade, within a biking range from the heart of the city is one of the most delightful places in Pondicherry for a stroll, a sunbath or a swim. On the beachfront there are many sites like the statue of Mahatma Gandhi bordered by eight delicately carved monolithic pillars and a war memorial.

- Located on Eswaran Koil Street, it is the place where the celebrated Tamil poet Kanakasubburatnam lived after arriving here in 1908 as a refugee. He changed his name to Bharthidasan, which means the disciple of Bharti. His home is now the second most important place of literary pilgrimage in Pondicherry.

- This massive church built in the Gothic style, is one of the most beautiful in Pondicherry.
