Mahe, also known as Mayyazhi, is a small beach town which is located on the tip of the river Mahe. Although it is situated in the state of Kerala physically, it forms a part of the union territory of Pondicherry. Surrounded by the beautiful landscape of Kerala, Mahe was a part of French India and had several monuments pertaining to the same. With its charming blue sky, emerald greenery, golden sands and cotton clouds, Mahe is the perfect example of the region's unadulterated natural beauty. If you are looking for a quiet family vacation in the lap of nature, then Mahe is the perfect pick for you.
One of the most fascinating things about Mahe is its long and meticulous history, which can be traced back to French India. Many distinctive architectures here illustrate French influence, with one of them being an imposing statue of the Marianne which is a mark of the French Revolution. The government house is where the headquarters for the administration of Mahe is located, and it has beautiful French architecture as well. It also has a mini forest area which is an adventure in its own right. In addition to its fascinating buildings, Mahe is also a gateway to the Arabian Sea, the Mayyazhi River, the coastline comprising of golden sand and Dharmadam Island. Mahe's freedom movement started from this place and hence, a quaint and well-maintained park in the name of Rabindranath Tagore is situated here as well.
