... modern but inactive counterpart and the Shore Temple.

Next on the itinerary is former French-ruled Puducherry (Pondicherry). On the way we pass rope (coir) makers, weaving coconut fibres and take a healthy lunch in the cosmic retreat known as Auroville.

The geographical centre of Auroville is marked by an epic banyan tree - banyans are unique as their roots grow out and down appearing as a whole group of tree trunks linked together (see the photo, then that will hopefully make more ...

... would've had no chance on a scooter, I was ready to go home but then realised there was no way of doing so. I retraced my steps and after about 15 minutes a kind French lady gave me a lift on the back of her scooter to the road that leads down to the Visitor Centre.
