Pondicherry Museum

Pondicherry Museum is situated near the Government Park in Pondicherry Town. The main attraction is the central space with 3 curious transport mechanisms-a coach, a palanquin (sedan chair) and a pousse-pousse that requires two attendants. The museum displays archeological remains such as remnants of Greek and Roman jars, pieces from the Tsung periods in China and the precious stones dug out from the Arikamedhu. Bronze images of god and goddess, handicrafts, art and a wide collection of temple lamps are also here. Some specimens of Pallava and Chola art from Pondicherry and Karaikal are exhibited in the sculpture gallery.
