Pondicherry, also known as Puducchery is a beautiful town in south India. It offers unique experience with its mix of modern heritage & spiritual culture. It was a French colony until 1954 & now also it retains a number of colonial buildings, churches, statues, & systematic town planning. It is also a popular weekend destination which can be reached easily from the nearby cities such as Chennai & Bangalore.
Best Time to Visit: During October to February it can be said the best season to visit. During winter, the climate is comparatively cooler. However during Monsoon i.e. from July to September it received heavy rainfall. If you want to enjoy monsoon, then this season is good. Also since it is considered to be the low season in tourism industry, you will get cheaper rates of hotels & restaurants. But beaches & restaurants may be closed during monsoon. October to February is time for summer & climate is very hot. Not advisable to visit during summers.
