Good place to have a rest under shady trees. Lots of people, but unfortunately a lot of stray dogs as well, most sleeping in the stone benches meant for people! Could be cleaner as we saw a lot of rubbish (mostly paper and food wrappings)...More

Center point of Bharathi park.. very historical monument. The monument was built in Greco-Roman style at the centre of the park.. There is an interesting story behind the construction of the Aayi Mandapam.

This monument is located in the centre of the Bharti Park ( it can be seen from outside as well). To be honest, I have no idea why this monument was build and other information, but, I really loved the architecture so I was busy...More

Its a small garden to chill with friends and family. Not much to see. You can keep it in your list the last place to visit before leaving the city.

The Park Monument (Aayi Mandapam) is a beautiful French architecture surrounded by green lawn. The place is well maintained. Nothing much to do here. A couple of minutes to check out the place are good enough.

Beautiful example of French building and grandeur. Definitely worth the visit. Benches around the monument are also very tastefully made of granite. Rambu nalla!

Nice location. The monument is the photo shoot place.. indicates you are in Pondicherry. You need to visit and move out quickly
