Pondicherry embodies emerald green waters, tall, swaying palms, the sky mirroring varied hues, and diverse cultures entwining to form a beautiful union. The essence of Pondi is a blend of spiritual aura, French colonial heritage, Tamil culture and a cosmopolitan flair of many nationalities. Places Of Interest : The Government Park forms the centre of the town. Colonial buildings, tracing back to the 18th century, lie along a grid of straight clean streets. These house French institutions, private homes and businesses, and the sprawling premises of the famous Sri Aurobindo Ashram. Monuments abound in Pondy. The Aayi Mandapam at the centre of the Park is the most well-known monument. There is also the French Consulate in Pondicherry, the French Institute, the Alliance Francais and the Ecole Francais d*Extreme Orient. For the spiritual seekers there is the immensely well known Auroville, the international City of Unity.
