Pondicherry, or Puducherry as it is now known, has South India’s most distinctive sub culture. Originally, Puducheri or New Settlement, it was interpreted into Pondicherry by and for the French. From the Romans who came here to trade in the 1st century AD to the Portuguese who returned in 1521 to trade in textiles, Pondicherry has had a colourful legacy.
