Arikamedu: Roman Emporia Poduca

Arikamedu: Roman Emporia Poduca

Travelers visiting Pondicherry will find Arikamedu mentioned in a lot of tourist brochures, as it should be, but sadly enough there is very little information to be had. And a visit to the site itself reveals nothing of the historical significance and the archaeological bounty that lies buried in layers of soil beneath the crumbling ruins of the French Mission House. Indeed, it is quite futile to go to Arikamedu unless you accompanied by someone who has knowledge of its past - stretching back to 2nd century BCE, and beyond! At the site, there is no information board, or a person to explain the history of the place.
