Quick view, interesting

This is a statue for the french war memorial. It's along the same path as the beach, and is worth the 5 minute walk by, but not worth going just to see this.

If you are in French colony, this is located on the seaside and nothing great. You may wanna visit just for the sake of it...

This is the famous beach of Puducherry. The 1.5 km long promenade is the pride of the city with several landmarks like the statue of Mahatma Gandhi, Dupleix, the elegant French war memorial and the 27 metre tall light house.

Must see place only if you are a BIG history enthusiast. Blink & you will miss this while driving across the promenade beach. All you can do is halt & click a picture.

The attraction is situated in a small garden just on road side of pondichery Beach. Even in morning a lock was on main gate. No body remains present here. You can see a small statue of a soldier from gate. May be memorial of french soldier but i feel nothing to see.

The memorial is nothing to write home about. I found it to be quite average. The surroundings can be maintained much better.

It is just a place to be seen. Nothing is special. No info abt it. All in Tamil or Hindi so hard for foreigners to understand its meaning.

I did not find anything great about this place. Just a place to be seen. Inscription is in french and hence cant read and understand. They should place some information about this place and its importance.
