Pondicherry is a French Boulevard town with palm-fringed coastline. The famous Aurobindo Ashram, the international acclaimed Auroville, world-renowned Yoga centres and other attractions makes it a very unique destination - to the domestic as well as the international visitors. According to legends, the town was once called Vedapuri and was a seat of Vedic culture, and the abode of Sage Agastya. Prof. Jonvean Dubrouil, the French archeologist believes that the Ashram of Agastya was on the very spot where the main building of Sri Aurobindo Ashram stands today. Remnants of an ancient port town have been excavated at Arikamedu, 6 kms from Pondicherry town highlighting the past trade connections with Rome and Greece, around the period 100 BC and 100 AD. Pondicherry continued to flourish even during the Chola period, as the discovery of the Chola coins from the eleventh and twelfth centuries indicate.
