Reviews of Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Jesus • 3
We spent time till evening and then headed to French colony which is at a walk able distance from the beach. Its a beautiful colony with buildings of different colors mainly yellow. We thought of going to Sri Aurobindo Ashram but it closes at 6 p.m. , so we spent our time walking around the colony. We had our dinner in a restaurant in Whitetown which cost us around 1100-1200 for four which was cheap. One more thing which is cheap in Pondi is alcohol :))). You can get a Budweiser pint for 70 Rs and Blenders Pride for 600 Rs which is pretty cheap. We still had time to call it a night so we headed to a church which is quite famous - "The Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Jesus". After that we headed to our room, sneaked to the rooftop and drank till 2 .
Next plan was the famous Basilica Church near Pondicherry Railway Station.
A real Beauty. There is a Gandhi Statue and an old lighthouse facing it.
