When I started my journey to Pondicherry from Chennai, I have never imagined that I am going to awe-stricken by the amazing quality that city holds from decades. When British gain control of the whole of India in the late 1850s they allowed the French to retain their settlements in the country. Pondicherry, Mahe, Yanam, Karaikal and Chandernagor remained a part of French India until 1954 when it was incorporated into the Indian Union along with the rest of French India. I admit French people have done some serious work to beautify this city that made my 3-hour journey worth. I was amazed by the ambience of the city, From the beaches that are much cleaner than any other beaches in the country to the simple but symbolic architectural French quarters. From the mouth watering cuisine that has a taste of France to the Place of no religion. Everything is amazing.
