It's an old statue located at the end of the rock beach. I don't know who Dupleix is but must be someone important, that they made a statue of him.

The place looks bright in the evening, and the statue adds grace to it. After the restoration works the statue has regained the glory.

The Statue of Dupleix is at the end of the promenade opposite the GMT ice cream parlor. It is overlooking the Rock beach and adjoining the promenade.

This statue is at the other end of Promenade rock beach - it has historical significance that's it. Not a majestic one but at least its there to read about Dupleix and maybe google a bit about him and know the history of Pondicherry .

What a shame it is that the 'powers that be' decide to retain a French era statue in a very prominent place and smugly decide to ignore all maintenance work.
