About Karaikal

The French ruled Karaikal from 1739 to 1954. Today it is a beautiful port city that serves as an ideal destination for those who crave solitude and tranquility. Serene mornings, sun-drenched afternoons and breezy evenings describe an idyllic day in Karaikal. A city influenced by the French rule, today Karaikal has become the abode of Gods, with numerous temples decorating its skyline. The evening aarti, the chants of priests and the ringing of bells transforms the city into a chaotic mix of sounds and sights that are unforgettable. You can read more about Karaikal here.
