Questions & Answers about Hotels near French War Memorial,Pondicherry
What is the distance from the French War Memorial to the Puducherry railway station? How can we commute locally in Pondy?
Asked by Emily, 05-04-2018
The French War Memorial is just 1.4 km (about 7-8 min of travel) away from the Puducherry railway station. As Pondicherry is a small city (which can be covered in about 30-40 minutes), there are no cabs available. While auto-rickshaws are available, they end up being quite expensive. The best way to commute within Pondicherry is to rent a car/bike.
