Pondicherry is often referred to as 'The Paris of the East'. This is due to the fact that Pondicherry is one of the oldest French colonies in the world and was annexed by the French East India Company as part of the French territory in India. This colonization also led to the addition of French culture on the people and surroundings, which is probably visible even today. The Union Territory has now been renamed as Puducherry, although the old name is still in existence today. From sun-kissed sandy beaches to historical monuments, from shopping in the bustling streets to the serene atmosphere of temples and churches, the Paris of the East still remains a very popular tourist attraction in India.
