Situated in the Bay of Bengal is the breathtakingly beautiful archipelago called the Andaman Islands of India.

The Andaman Islands are known to be the home of the Sentinelese people. This tribe has no contact with mankind. It is a restricted area for the trespassers and people here are nomads still living on raw meat and with scantily or unclad bodies.

In Andaman, most of the population believes in the religion which can be best described as Monotheistic Animism. These tribes residing on the Island believe in only one deity Paluga. They believe whatever is happening on the Earth is as per the wish of the Lord Paluga.

Apart from the mesmerizing and enchanting beauty of the place, there are a lot of places that are still unexplored by many. So why not check out some of the unexplored places in Andaman?
