A Landmark on Promenade

Been to Pondicherry? Yes!Then it's really unlikely you would have missed a visit to the promenade street. Infact, the first time I went to Pondicherry, I visited the promenade even before I checked into a hotel.This road that runs along the sea can be compared to the necklace road of Mumbai but a more humble version. The statue of Mahatma Gandhi is installed midway the length of this promenade road. During the day, this road can be really peaceful especially on a Saturday and the evenings see it filled with tourists and locals enjoying the open street as the road is blocked for motor vehicles.Street vendors centred around the Mahatma Gandhi statue sell toys for kids, food, beverages, clothes etc. Depending on the time of the day and the day you visit, you may sit by a cafe that reads 24 HR cafe and enjoy a coffee or take a stroll across the length of the promenade which can be really relaxing during an early evening on a Saturday.Tips: Sunday's are typically busy and if your idea is to take a leisurely stroll on this beautiful stretch of road, then Sunday evening is surely not your ideal time of visit. While the road is blocked for motor vehicles, it is best to park your bike (Assuming you are a tourist and renting a 2-wheeler which is the most comfortable mode of commute) in one of the by-lanes.Day can be really hot and humid but nights are pleasant (relatively) to walk by the sea on the promenade road with the sound of the waves creating a perfect background score.

Nice place on Promenade Beach

Good statue. Nice place to hangout in evening as temperature is comfortable in evening. Promenade Beach is most happening place in Pondi, so statue is located exactly opposite to Bharathi Park.

Spiritual And Inspirational

Installation of Mahatma Gandhi's statue at such a place is a grand homage to Great Mahatma, by the peoples of Pondicherry. The most attractive, really spiritual and inspirational for all, to see Mahatma Gandhi's statue at Goubert Avenue. This statue is four meter high, erected on a pedestal, and surrounded by eight Granite's beautifully carved, which were brought from Gingee, a Forte 70KM away from Pondicherry. So Father of Nation has become the glimpse of every tourist of Pondy, which is used affectionately, at least everyone will remember his Non Violence movements for freedom. Front space is used for cultural activities.

Enjoy the Sea Breeze from this point

This statue of Mahatma Gandhi is situated on the Paradise Beach. The road in front of it is the most bustling area of Pondicherry. During weekends this place turns into a fair. Vehicles are not allowed in this road after 6:30PM. So one can take a stroll through this place without the fear of automobiles. There are many hotels and cafes by the side of the road, where you can enjoy the sea breeze along with good food. From my personal experience, would say that to avoid this road on weekends. Weekdays are the best time, so spend with your loved ones..

Just for clicking pictures

Gandhi statue is the first thing that you see as soon as you reach the beach road. There is half a kilometre stretch alongside Pondicherry beach which is called the beach road. Gandhi statue is right in the middle of this road. It is a good place to click few selfies. The place is good for taking pictures.
