The French East India Company came to Mahe in 1721. They approached the Vazhunnavar of Badagara, in March 1721 for his permission to open a godown in Mahe. He was hesitant in the beginning. But in September, 1722 the permission was granted as per the treaty signed by the Badagara Vazhunnavar and the representative of the French East India Company.
