Trip Planner Asia  /  India  /  Pondicherry  /  Yanam
Yanam is a town in the Indian union territory of Puducherry, located in Yanam district, which forms a 30 km² enclave in the district of East Godavari in Andhra Pradesh. It has a population of 32,000, most of whom speak Telugu. For 200 years it was a French colony, and, though united with India in 1954, is still sometimes known as French Yanam. It possesses a blend of French and Telugu culture prevailing in Andhra Pradesh. During French rule, the Tuesday market at Yanam was popular among Telugu people in the Madras Presidency who visited Yanam to buy foreign and smuggled goods during Yanam People's Festival, which is held in January. Also, after implementation of the Sarda Act in British India in 1929, Telugu people came to Yanam to conduct child marriages, which remained legal under the French administration. In 1936, Yanam's population was 5,220.StatisticsGeographyThe district lies in the delta of the Godavari River; the town is situated where the river meets its tributary, the Koringa River (Coringa River), nine kilometres from the Bay of Bengal on the Coromandel coast.
Yanam is in Union Territory of Pondicherry. In the build up to your vacation in Yanam, plan trip itinerary minutiae using the visitor reviews, staff write-ups, and custom search fields on our India trip builder .
