Did you know that Puducherry, a union territory in India, was formed by merging four former colonies of French India? The territories of Pondicherry (now Puducherry) and Karaikal lie on India's southeastern Coromandel Coast, surrounded by Tamil Nadu state. Yanam, on the other hand, is located farther north along the eastern coast in the delta region of the Godavari River and is surrounded by Andhra Pradesh state. Meanwhile, Mahe is situated on the western Malabar Coast and is surrounded by Kerala state. Talk about a diverse and unique blend of cultures and landscapes!
