St.Ann’s Catholic Church in Yanam was built by the Catholic French rulers in the year 1846, with the foundation stone being laid by Father Michel Lecnam. He however did not live to see the church built and a culvert has been installed in his memory in the Church.

Most of the furniture and other decorations were imported from France. Close to the church are two hill temples, one built by the French rulers of Yanam and the other built by the English Engineers. The temple is an important place of worship in Yanam and a place that should be visited once at Yanam. It is an excellent example of French architecture of that time period.
