Pondicherry temples

Though Pondicherry is widely known as a French Enclave with the influence of French culture and tradition in all verticals, spirituality is also an essential aspect to be explored in Pondicherry. Whenever we hear about Pondicherry, we are getting reminded of Aurobindo Ashram, a popular location witnessing hundreds of devotees and tourists. Manakula Vinayagar temple is the iconic temple of Pondicherry. The temple is believed to be at least few hundred years old with Lord Ganesh as the presiding deity. Vedhapureeswarar temple where Lord Shiva is the presiding deity has a spacious architecture and a grand façade tower. Lord Vishnu receives equal number of devotees in Varadharaja Perumal temple adjacent to Vedhapureeswarar temple.

Kanniga Parameswari temple is the another spiritual icon of Pondicherry with the presiding deity as Goddess Durga. The architecture of this temple is a blend of French and Tamil styles. When the anctum is in the tamil culture, there are stained glass panes around symbolising the French culture, an interesting combination to explore around. If you happen to be at Pondicherry during any of the festival days like Diwali, Pongal or Navaratri, pay a visit to Kamatchi Amman temple, and it is a delight to witness special poojas and rituals.
