 The Union Territory of Pondicherry has beenderived from the Tamil word Puducheri signifying 'the new settlement'. It was aFrench settlement that comprised Pondy, Yanam, Karaikal, and Mahe. Amazing isthe fact that different districts of Pondicherry fall under different states. Thecapital Pondicherry is situated in the state of Tamil Nadu at a distance ofaround 200 km from Chennai.  WhileKaraikal is also a part of Tamil Nadu, Mahe is located in Kerala, and Yanam isin Andhra Pradesh.

 Puducherry is multidimensional to say theleast. A place of history and preserved colonial charm. Sandy beaches, cleanpromenades, temples, Monuments, heritage villas, quaint old-world townplanning, spiritual mystique and a lingering French ambience define its uniquecharacter.  It is definitely a place tounwind or just be - a great weekend getaway from Chennai or Bangalore. Further,it is in close proximity to historically renowned south Indian towns and citiesknown variously for their art, religious and cultural heritage as well as greatnatural beauty.  Puducherry has a specialvibe, not felt anywhere else in India. It is a blend of spiritual aura,colonial heritage, Tamil culture and the Cosmopolitan flair of manynationalities in a small but varied town. This inherent ambience of Pondybecomes most evident in the oldest part of the town which flanks the seashoreboulevard.

 The colonial buildings, some of which dateback to the 18th century, stretch along a grid of clean straight streets whichhouse French institutions, Hotels, Guest Houses, Restaurants, Boutiques andprivate homes, including the sprawling premises of the famous Sri AurobindoAshram.
