Pondicherry, is a Union Territory of India. It is a former French colony, consisting of four regions, and named after the largest region, Puducherry.
Pondicherry still retains much evidence of its history as a French colony. The design of the city was based on the French (originally Dutch, the plans of Pondicherry dating from the end of the seventeenth century (1693-1694) are preserved in the National Archives at The Hague) grid pattern and features neat sectors and perpendicular streets. The entire town is divided into two sections, the French Quarter ('Ville Blanche' or 'White town') and the Indian quarter ('Ville Noire' or 'Black Town').
I loved the use of colours. While you can see bright hues of yellow on one side, you will also see the subtle and subdues hues of grey and blue. The stone floored steets look truly french
