Difference between Tezos and Ethereum

The smart contract language of the Tezos blockchain is Michelson whereas the smart contract language of Ethereum is Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM ).
Both EVM and Michelson are stack-based programming language which works by mutating a sequence of data elements to some sequence of instructions.

The main difference between Michelson and EVM are

To understands the working of tezos , we must know about the utility of special characteristics of Tezos.
