Destination Information

ABOUT THE TERRITORY:
LAKHSADWEEP also known as the Laccadive Islands is a group of islands in the Laccadive Sea, 200 to 440 km off the coast of the South West Indian state of Kerala. The islands form the smallest Union Territory of India. The total land area is 11 sq mi or 32 km². Ten of the islands are inhabited. Lakshadweep is the northern part of the erstwhile Lakshadweepa. The islands are the northernmost among the Lakshadweep-Maldives-Chagos group of islands, which are actually the tops of a vast undersea mountain range, in the Indian Ocean and the Arabian Sea.
The land area is 32 square kilometers (12 sq mi); the lagoon area is about 4,200 square kilometers (1,600 sq mi), the territorial waters area is 20,000 square kilometers (7,700 sq mi) and the economic zone area is 400,000 square kilometers (150,000 sq mi).
Lakshadweep is an archipelago of twelve atolls, three reefs and five submerged banks, with a total of about thirty-nine islands and islets. The reefs are in fact also atolls, although mostly submerged, with only small-unvegetated sand cays above the high water mark. The submerged banks are sunken atolls. Almost all the atolls have a northeast-southwest orientation with the islands lying on the eastern rim, and a mostly submerged reef on the western rim, enclosing a lagoon. It has 10 inhabited islands, 17 uninhabited islands, attached islets, 4 newly formed islets and 5 submerged reefs.

The main islands are Kavaratti (where the capital city, Kavaratti, is located), Agatti, Minicoy, and Amini. The total population of the territory was 60,595 according to the 2001 census. Agatti has an airport where there are direct flights from Kochi, Kerala or Ernakulam (Cochin). Tourists need a permit to visit the islands; foreign nationals are not permitted to visit certain islands. Consumption of alcohol is not permitted in the islands except on Bangaram Island.

RELIGION:
People here are ethnically similar to that of the people of Kerala. A special feature of the social set up of the territory is the division of the population into various classes, viz. Koyas, Malmis and Malacheris in Laccadive group of Islands; Manikfans, Thakurs and Raveries in Minicoy and Tarwad, Tanakam-pranaver, Kudiatis and Melacheris in Amini.
Koyas:
The Koyas were the chief land owning class of the society. Formerly they were known as Tarawadis or the Karnavar class. Originally, the class consisted of the Principal families of Tarwads known as Caravans who sat as jurors in the community Panchayats. They regarded themselves superior to others and hated alliance with others. In earlier days, the Caravans were the real masters of the land.
Malmis:
The Malmis are the sailors. The word Malmi is connected with the signs of ways. In the past the Malmis were the tenants of the Koyas and they served as sailors under them and exported their produce in the odam. Piloting of vessels is not the only privilege of this class and anybody who acquired mastery over the nautical table is as competent as a successful Malmi.
Melacheris:
The Melacheris were the original labour class of the islands and formed the major part of the population of Amini of the Laccadive Group of islands. The people of Kadmat, Kiltan, Chetlat and Bitra are all Melacheris who have migrated from Amini and from the coast. Their traditional occupation is to collect coconut tree nuts and tap neerah, the sweet toddy. It appears that the name has its origin in their traditional place of residence on the western side of the island. Mala means West, Cheri denotes a village.
Among the class system of Minicoy, the Manikfans are considered to be of the highest class. They alone owned private property and were the leisured class. The Thakrufans were the sailors who mainly piloted sailing vessels. Takrus worked in the boats during voyages while the Raveris were the Labourers. Women of the four classes are known as Manikka, Beefan, Beebee and Kambilo respectively. In between Thakrufan and Thakru, there is a sub-caste known as Bebe.

CULTURE:
Lakhshadweep Culture presents a pulsating forum of diversified customs and rituals.

This way the popularity of Islam took place in Lakshadweep and today each and every person of the place religiously follow the traditions of Muslim sects.

Since Lakshadweep is situated near one of the beautiful states of India – Kerala – it is but obvious that there are enough evidences of the cultural influence of that place are found in abundance. For one, the main diet of Lakhshadweep is rice that is also the same in Kerala.

The religious customs that are followed by the people of Lakshadweep are all a part of the age-old religion that has molded the beliefs of the local people in its own ways. From Muharram, Bakrid to Mild-Un-Nabi and Id-Ul-Fitr, the festivals symbolize the vibrant culture of Lakshadweep.
