Description[edit | edit source]
The Maldives are an archipelago in the Indian Ocean and the smallest country of Asia. According to tradition, the Maldives became a united sultanate when the Cholas were expelled in the 12th century. The islands were a British protectorate from 1887 to 1965. The monarchy was abolished three years after independence. Today, the Maldives are above all known as a tourist destination.
