I organised a Heritage walking tour though INTACH. It was fabulous and very informative. Ashok did our Tour and he was full of wonderful information about the buildings and how the city was trying to preserve them. Definitely worth doing while in Pondicherry

The walk is a very easy walk and probably last about 1 hr as the area covered is quite small. It is still very interesting and well worth taking.
