Its population of 328,536 (2012) inhabits 200 of its 1,192 islands.Maldives' capital and largest city Malé had a population of 103,693 in 2006.[10][11] It is located at the southern edge of North Malé Atoll, in the Kaafu Atoll. It is also one of the Administrative divisions of the Maldives. Traditionally it was the King's Island where the ancient Maldive Royal dynasties were enthroned.


The Maldives was dominated from the mid sixteenth century by colonial powers: Portugal, the Netherlands, and Britain. In 1965, the Maldives gained independence from the British, becoming a republic. It was then ruled by a sultanate and an authoritarian government.Best Maldives deals on luxury and cheap hotels
