Lakshadweep is a Union Territory[?] of India. It consists of a multitude of islands lying in the Arabian Sea. The name of the archipelago literally means hundred thousand islands (laksha = one hundred thousand, dweep = island). Laccadives is a now-unused anglicized name of this island group (compare to Maldives, Sanskrit name Maladweepa).
