Things to Do in Pondicherry

  • Sri Aurobindo’s Birthday

    Every year on 15th August, locals celebrate not just the Independence Day but Sri Aurobindo’s birth anniversary also. Devotees from different parts of the world gather on this day to offer prayers to his Samadhi and revel in the spirit of his ideologies.

  • Temple Adventures Scuba Diving and Surfing India

    Temple Adventures Scuba Diving and Surfing India offers exciting adventurous activities like boating, scuba diving and surfing. Located at Colas Nagar in Pondicherry, it is the first and only diving centre along the east coast of India. From beginners and non-swimmers to experts, every guest is assured safety by trained professionals who provide the right guidance.

    Temple Adventures offers more than 20 diving sites that include rocky outcrops as well as natural and man-made coral reefs. These sites have varying depths that range between 5 metres and 40 metres. It is a once-in-a-lifetime experience to watch rare species of hydrophytes and aquatic animals swim beside you under the ocean. Corals, moray eels, eagle and manta rays, parrotfish, lionfish, grouper, king fish, sea snakes, trigger fish, angels, banner fish and crustaceans are some of the animals that can be seen underwater. Pool diving is offered for those who prefer to enjoy scuba diving in artificial pools rather than in the vast ocean.

    The Surf Safaris offered here cover a radius of approximately 50 kilometres from Mahabalipuram. The sheer adrenaline rush experienced while surfing up and down the coast is something that cannot be felt elsewhere in the country. Latest scuba and surfing equipment are offered to the guests. Apart from recreational services, this diving centre provides certificate courses in scuba diving and surfing. The scuba diving courses are PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors) certified.

    Temple Adventures Scuba Diving and Surfing India is also India's only Free Diving School (Free diving is the art of holding your breath and diving underwater.) Groups of interested people from places near and far participate in various competitions that are held here throughout the year.
