There’s a tiny piece of France in India and it’s called Pondicherry. A attractive, small town with enough elements to charm its visitors, Pondicherry whose official name was changed to Puducherry in 2006 was once the largest French colony in India, hence the heavy French influence. A popular destination for seeking religious explanation, Pondy is home to the highly revered Sri Aurobindo Ashram and Auroville, where people of varied beliefs and nationalities live together in harmony.
