The Silver beach is silver in spite of the dirt thrown all over. Such a beautiful beach is not maintained. The havoc of tsunami is seen all over and spoken by the locals still. Robert Clive's house withstood the tsunami - something to be proud....... More

Cuddalore Info

  • State: Tamil Nadu
  • Famous for/as: Beach

Cuddalore is a fast growing industrial city located south of Pondicherry on the banks of the Bay of Bengal. The word Cuddalore literally means "Sea Town" in Tamil. Cuddalore is known for its picturesque beaches and its ancient Saiva and Vaishnava temples.

The Gedilam River flows through the town and separates the Old Town from Thirupadiripuliyur. Old Town was an ancient seaport and traded with the Roman Empire approximately 2000 years ago. Cuddalore was first conquered by the Dutch, followed by Portugal, France and later Britain. The British built Fort St David in Cuddalore near Devanampattinam. The city has some highly respected schools, founded by Europeans in the 17th century, which are perhaps the oldest surviving schools in India.

Though Cuddalore was heavily affected by the tidal waves of the 2004 tsunami, the city with its indomitable spirit has swung back into action. Cuddalore is connected to other parts of Tamil Nadu through a very good rail and road network.
