Trully deserving name for the beach: Paradise beach. Clean, serene and full of live shells.
Here you will be literally surrounded by water from all side. Thanks to backwater :D
You can reach the beach either by boat from Chunnambar boat house via backwater or by road via Dhrowbathiamman Koil street/Srinivasa Ave. (google will show the second option first :D )
I took the second option as it takes less time and I didn't have to face the rush at boathouse.
It would be better to visit the beach in morning time.
The Bay of Bengal roared with utmost ferocity, twenty years since I last heard it do that. The waves crashing against the rocks, engendering the melody I so adore. The wind kissed me as it moved from the water towards the land, carrying the salty air along with it. .
Away from the hubbub of the city, I stood in a state of trance, captivated by the sea. My mind like the wind, drifted from one place to the other. I looked around, at the faces of those three who made this place more special than it already was. They looked as calm and lost as I did, lost but liberated. We stood there for a while, and then we sat, like we did for the last three days. We shared some laughs, and we shared some pain, we shared some stories, and we made some new ones. And in that moment the world felt perfect, the world felt complete. Maybe it was the sea, maybe it was the company, maybe it was both. And tomorrow when I go back to face reality, I will look back at this, look back at the moments. And I will look forward to the time when I feel the breeze again, to the time I will hear those sweet voices again. Till that time, I will relive those moments again, moments that will stay close to my heart, always. .
Eglise De Norte Dame Des Anges ⛪
Looking out over the Bay of Bengal, with its frontage facing the rising sun, the church of Our Lady of Angels stands in the former Capuchins' square, surrounded by the streets Dumas, Surcouf and Romain Rolland. Between the church and the sea lies a little garden, in the middle of which stands a statue of Joan of Arc, armoured and carrying a battle standard. The statue and the garden bearing her name.
Built & razed to ground for 3 times between A.D 1707 - A.D 1770, the current church got its final structure on A.D 1885 is one of the oldest and famous church in Pondicherry. Credit for its construction must be given to Engineer Louis Guerre.
