  • If I had seen this French Institute when I had my Son who was 5 Years of Age I would have PUT him year. He would have been in EU now not USA.  more »
  • The visit is allowed in some points of the building and on the terrace from the waterfront. Nice front yard.

  • I attended the painting exhibition here by local artists depicting the Pondicherry life. The venue, though small was very well maintained.  more »

  • A guide or a pamphlet would have been nicer for the Rs.100 they charged at the entrance for just a small house ๐Ÿ™‚
  • If you are inclined to know about french related stuff happened or history in pondicherry, you have come at the right place.Time spent about 2 hours with relaxed pace. They charge Rs. 100 which is nothing comparing at what you will see inside and in whole. Their are different research fields and professors cubicles which can se seen from outside. Place is very well maintained from outdoors and indoors. Some historic idols datung about 100 years old are placed to see. Access to first floor is available and have got some more collection. Also have access to terrace wherr you can go and take pictures with astounding beach view.
  • Was amazed to see the work being done in the fields of Indology and ecology. If you are doing research in these fields, this institute has the potential to enrich your subject area.
  • Good place to visit
  • Nothing much to be said about this building/mansion...we came across this mansion while exploring the French town... It can be easily identified by the bright yellow color of the mansion...it is also heavily guarded by police...so that no unauthorized entries are made in...It also acts as French High Commission as well... It is prohibited to take pics...however one can take it from Beach road or Promenade side...
