BEAUTIFUL ANDAMAN ISLANDS

The Andaman Islands are an Indian archipelago in the Bay of Bengal. These roughly 300 islands are known for their palm-lined, white-sand beaches, mangroves and tropical rainforests. Coral reefs supporting marine life such as sharks and rays make for popular diving and snorkelling sites. Indigenous Andaman Islanders inhabit the more remote islands, many of which are off limits to visitors.

Apart from coconuts and seafood, most of the eateries and staples are imported from the Indian peninsula and stocked regularly to be served to the locals and tourists alike. Common seafood varieties that can be enjoyed here are prawns, coconut crabs, cuttlefishes, yellowfin, and dogtooth. The island is connected to mainland India via Air India and Jet Airways. Ferries like the MV Akbar and MV Nancowry connect the island by sea.

Andaman History

History of Andaman

The inhabitants of the islands are the Andamanese and the Sentinelese who have thrived in pure isolation from the outer world, having no connection with them whatsoever. The region was then administered by the Chola Dynasty. The inhabitants live by the philosophy of Animism, which is said to be the oldest religion in the world. Its followers believe that everything sports a distinct spiritual identity – all living & non-living things. They also believe in the presence of one god who regulates everything in this world. However, religions like Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, Jainism and Baha’I Faith are practiced too.
