Overall rating: 7

Puducherry, formerly known as Pondicherry, means ‘New village’ according to its literal translation from Tamil to English. This Union Territory is also acknowledged as the ‘French Riviera of the East’.

Pondicherry comprises of four small disjointed districts; Pondicherry, Yanam and Karaikal which is on the Bay of Bengal and the Mahe on the Arabian Sea.

The records of Pondicherry can be lined right back to the 2nd century AD.

The Official dialects of Pondicherry are Telugu, Malayalam, Tamil and French although English is generally used for convenience. The regional languages are Telugu and Malayalam.

I like Pondicherry very much because my native place. The places are very clean and neat. Beaches are very good and cost of products are less price.more green places are their. Very good like my mom. Roads are very neat and many buses are easy to travel. More villages are near by them. University and school fees are less.
