Pondicherry – Travel Diaries

Today’s post is very special as it takes me back to memories of my Exciting Pondicherry – Travel Diaries. Pondicherry also known as Puducherry, is where my travel instincts took me this time. It is a Union Territory town bounded by South Eastern Tamil Nadu State. Its French Colony is accessorised by beautiful Villas and Chic boutiques. It is also called the White Town.

Let me take you through the details of my Trip

How to reach Pondicherry

I took a flight to Chennai and on the arrival, I opted for Zoom cars to rent a self drive car for the rest of the Trip. It was a three hour journey from Chennai to Pondicherry.

Places I visited in Pondicherry

MATRI MANDIR

It is a Dome shaped structure covered with Golden discs that give the structure characteristic radiance. The Matri Mandir represents Human conciousness. Inside the dome is a Meditation hall known as the Inner Chamber , a place for an individual to experience Silent concentration.

Villa Shanti

A multi-cuisine restaurant with a lovely ambiance. The combination of earthy colours mostly white with hints of brown at the doors and tall palm trees gave a very pleasant feel. It became my favourite eatery in Pondicherry with brilliant Continental food. The Arrabiata Pasta was delicious and we also tried the Pesto Pasta which had a rich Creamy texture.

Promenade

The Promenade is the long stretch of beachfront along the Bay of Bengal. There is also a wide pavement suitable for walking. It becomes lively in the evening, and is surrounded with many restaurants around.

AUROVILLE

is a  Universal city dedicated to the concept of Human Unity. Their visiter center was a well kept, tidy place with a museum, stores and a café. I loved their variety of Gourmet desserts and icecreams, with many of them being Vegan and Gluten free.

Gelato Factory

A place with Unique ice-creams which are  authentic in the Italian sense. I tried the Ferrro- Roche which was super chocolaty just how I like it. My cousin cherished the Peach Ice-cream which is  rare yet so tasty.

We went to the Rider’s Café with a Motor Cycle store just beside it.  We tried a lot of items on their menu. I tried their Brownie Milkshake which was splendid.
