Havelock ( Barefoot) Resort Package, Andaman


The name Andaman is presumed to be derived from Hanuman, who was known to the Malays as Handuman. The early history of these islands is not well known although these were familiar to Arab traders in ancient times, the islands being situated close to the trade route to the Far East. The existence of these islands was first reported in the 9th century.
The first western visitor was Marco Polo who called it the land of the headhunters. The islands were annexed by the Marathas in the late 17th century. In the early, 18th century, the islands were the base of Maratha admiral Kanhoji Angre. The British were the first Europeans to settle in the islands when they established a colony at Chatham Island, near Port Cornwallis (Now Port Blair) in 1789.

It was discontinued after seven years, but in 1858 it was reestablished to imprison Indian freedom fighters. Initially the convicts were kept in a jail at Viper Island, which is about 15 minutes boat ride from Port Blair. The foundation of the infamous 'Cellular Jail' at Port Blair was laid in 1896. The building was completed in 1906. 
The British joined the Andaman and Nicobar islands in a single administrative unit in 1872. The islands were occupied by Japanese forces from March 21,1942 until the end of World War II in 1945, when the British regained control of the territory. The islands became a union territory of India when India gained independence from British rule in 1947. 
The population is made up of indigenous Negritos and settlers from the Indian mainland, Burma and refugees from East Pakistan & Sri Lanka. The aboriginal tribes, the Negritos, whose culture dates back to the Paleolithic era are the real treasure of the islands.
