Pondering over Pondy

Pondy has a dual personality: crossing from East to West of the central canal reveals two cities with very different characters.pondy 010

Ville Blanche is the White Town of French Pondicherry– with a colonial hangover. Reminiscences of the old world in distinct white and mustard buildings of Dumas, Romain Rolland, Suffren and Labourdonnais streets.

Streets of the French quarter are tranquil and shaded.

A lot of the old French houses are now carefully restored into heritage hotels and charming guest houses.

Hushed alleys, cobbled sidewalks, crumbling walls, quaint Parisian style cafes, chic boutiques..this place reveals its secrets at its own pace 🙂pondy 008
