We had a pleasant walk around this park on a nice day while in Ponducherry.It is a pleasant place to walk and sit and we saw the monument while we were there A nice meeting spot for locals
The Park Monument is situated inside the Bharathi Park. It is a unique monument with all the sides having almost similar architecture. After sunset, when the monument is lighted up, it gives the best look! Entry to the park is free and it is open till 7 PM.
Park Monument (Aayi Mandapam) is located inside "The Bharathi Park". Looks great from a distance but there is noting much too see when go close. If visiting Barathi Park - you may choose to spend 2 min else skip it - nothing to loose...
Aayi Mandapam is situated in the middle of Bharathi Park. It is a monument to respect a lady called 'Aayi', during the French time. She destroyed her house to erect water and allow water reservoir to be built for the city.
Pleasant well maintained park in the centre of the French part of Puducherry. Lovely for a little stroll and a perfect place to sit on a bench and read your book (second hand book store just nearby with heaps of English and some French books) or simply contemplate your luck at being in Pondy.
We had visited Bharati Park on a Sunday evening during our holidays in Pondicherry. We were fascinated to see this big white French style monument which was beautifully light up in the middle of the otherwise poorly light park. The place was very crowded and we had a good time clicking pics. There are no entry fee to this park.
