The modern history of Pondicherry, now known as Puducherry, is largely dominated by the French, and the impressions of the colonial rule can still be found out everywhere, from the symmetrically aligned streets to the layout and design of the city. Though the credit for the transformation of a merely fishing village to a big port city goes exclusively to its colonial rulers, it is not hard to find traces of its history before the coming of the Europeans, which included the Portuguese, the Dutch, the English and the Danes in addition to the French.
Pondicherry has a history that can be said to have begun in the very first millennium, as the findings of the excavations at Arikamedu have led us to conclude. It was supposed to be in contact with the Romans, mainly for trade of dyed textiles, semi-precious stones and pottery.
