Small quiet, peaceful and clean town.It was a French colony and still has some French flavor left, particularly in the area called white town.This is also where great revolutionary turned saint Sri Aurobindo settled for rest òf his life. Try stay at white town area and enjoy walk to nearby seabeach and Sri Aurobindo Ashram. Morning or evening walk at the beach is enjoyable. A day trip to Auroville would be nice. View of Mother's temple after a long walk is satisfying.

This lighthouse has an entry fee of Rs. 20 or 30 per adult... as you get to the top climbling step... the view is worth the efforts... the whole pondicherry is under you...
The colorful buildings, beaches, houses everything is visible... and the cool wind moving at the top is so amazing...

We were very excited to see this place but unfortunately after reaching there we get to know this place is closed for maintenance as of now. The premises was clean and nice and near to beach. This place close to city and opens at 3pm.

I never had in my mind that a light house would be so exciting. Must go place in Pondicherry. Visiting hour is from 4 pm to 5 pm. Entry fees is there. The view from the top is really amazing

Excellent, panaromic view of the beach and Pondicherry from the top of the lighthouse. Climb up (there's no lift) can be tough, especially for those who are unfit. But the view at the top is worth it, especially when you consider the low admission fees.

Must visit to see 360 surrounding view of Pondicherry and Bay of Bengal, has many stairs to climb, No lift, so Not suitable for elderly or sedentary people, as it is difficult to climb all stairs.
After reaching the top you have beautiful view and can enjoy, can click pictures too.

Visible from a distance, Pondicherry Lighthouse is a nice spot for clicks and views. Located near the main tourist areas in the city.
