Rock Beach - White Town

I reached around 2:30 pm on the beach and still it was amazing for my eyes to capture the whole of it. The wind was in its own mood to impress me and the sand was indulged in transferring heat from it to my foot.

An awesome place for mind relief. We went there on our first evening but loved it so much that went there again the next day and spent the whole evening. If you are at Rock Beach, you have to visit the cafe there (Le Cafe). The sound of the waves and the wind blowing through your hair, just so peaceful.

Lovely place to sit back and enjoy the view. But too crowded so we had to wait for a long time to get the table. Food tasted fine but not sure how hygienic the place was. I suggest you should visit the cafe atleast once, you cannot miss a sea facing cafe afterall.

Palais de Mahe - White Town

This is a 3- star boutique hotel on the Lal Bahadur Shastri Road and is known for their hospitality and welcoming. Their inner decorations are awesome and the rooms they give you are all deluxe with fantastic sea views. Their buffet and restaurants serve great food and of any cuisine because you are simply spoilt for choice here. Apart from this they have all sorts of modern facilities to cater to their guests and the lawn and poolside lounge area is another cherry on the awesome cake.
In Pondicherry, we stayed at the hotel Palais de Mahe. Newly built, this hotel resonated the old world charm of French architecture. With intricate details resembling the colonial building styles, this BOUTIQUE HOTEL transported you back in time. We had our first meal at the hotel’s restaurant itself {which was highly recommended}, and boy was I surprised! From Lobsters, crab to grilled fish, they had it all. With each dish being succulent and flavourful, we couldn’t have asked for a better start to the trip.

Eglise de notre Dame des Anges - White Town

Known as the Church of Our Lady of Angels, here we see some brilliant masonry and architectural styles. When the church was built, to give it the colour of absolute white marble, fine limestone was mixed with lot of egg whites to make the walls very white. The upper part of the church was made in the Ionic style and the lower part was made in the Doric Style which are both classical styles of architecture. The design of the church was inspired from another chapel of France. The painting that you see on the wall of this church was gifted by Napolean Bonaparte. In front of this church is the statue of Mother Mary with Baby Jesus in her Arms. The church is in a place from where you can see the beach as well as the bay of Bengal. There are also statues of the Joan of Arc and other saints and personalities.
A Church with French Architecture.
