Day Wise Itinerary

The older part of this former French colony (formerly called Pondicherry and almost always referred to as ‘Pondy’), has a lot of quiet, clean, shady, cobbled streets, lined with mustard-yellow colonial townhouses numbered in an almost logical manner. You’ll probably spend most of your time in this part of town, and if you've come from Chennai or some of the inland cities, old Pondy may well seem a sea of tranquillity. The newer part of town is much more typically South Indian.

Here is how you will spend your time
Day 1

Day 1: Arrive Chennai And Transfer To Pondicherry

Pick up from Chennai airport or railway station and drive to Pondicherry and check into hotel. Go for sightseeing of Pondicherry. Legend says that Pondicherry is the place where St. Agastya settled down. Visit Aurobindo Ashram, the city of dawn, which is 10 kms north of Pondicherry. This ashram promotes Aurobindo's ideas in bringing about a synthesis of Yoga and modern science, so as to unite the spirit and matter. Stay overnight in Pondicherry.

Day 3: Pondicherry To Mahabalipuram

After breakfast, proceed to Mahabalipuram and check in to your hotel. The city of Mahabalipuram is famous for the seven pagodas.
