Arikamedu: Roman Emporia Poduca

Arikamedu: Roman Emporia Poduca

star-3

Travelers visiting Pondicherry will find Arikamedu mentioned in a lot of tourist brochures, as it should be, but sadly enough there is very little information to be had. And a visit to the site itself reveals nothing of the historical significance and the archaeological bounty that lies buried in layers of soil beneath the crumbling ruins of the French Mission House. Indeed, it is quite futile to go to Arikamedu unless you accompanied by someone who has knowledge of its past - stretching back to 2nd century BCE, and beyond! At the site, there is no information board, or a person to explain the history of the place.

Indian Cooking Class in Pondicherry
"Fantastic experience. Highly recommend this. We made 4 dishes and it was so much fun. Manisha is awesome. She took us to the market in a rickshaw to buy all the ingredients (which was a fun experience as well) and then we started working under her expert guidance and had prepared seemingly complex dishes with ease before we knew it! Manisha is clearly someone who loves what she does and that makes all the difference. Thanks!!"..."

The Unique Pondicherry City Bike Tour
"This was a great tour. Even though I was the only person booked in it still ran. This tour provided an opportunity to visit a larger area than you would normally see when walking around. The guide also provided interesting background information to the history of the area. It is advisable to find the tour meeting spot if possible the day before, as it is a few streets away from the main Pondicherry area."..."

Traditional Kolam Class in Pondicherry
"We thoroughly enjoyed the Kolam class conducted by Lakshmi - she was full of passion and enthusiasm for her culture and the traditional crafts, which kept us engaged. Through the sharing of her growing up years, we came to have to have better understanding of why the women beautify their houses with kolams, and the different styles and techniques used to design them. It may look easy , but it certainly took much trying to draw a straight even thin line using sand. Hats off to those women who design using dots and looping lines. Admin wise, Lakshmi whatsapped me to confirm the address and timing of the class, which is something as a tourist, I appreciate so that we are assured that the class is going ahead. Sita Cultural Center is located in a beautiful teal blue house - ask Lakshmi to explain how the house keeps cool in summer and warm in winter!"..."
