Original Name: 
Chinese Name: 

A polity recorded in the MSL in connection with the eunuch-led voyages to the Indian Ocean in the early 15th century. Mills (1970; 212) identifies it as an island in the Maldives or the Laccadives. Chen, Xie and Lu (1986; 176-77) note the suggestion that it may be the island of Abd Al-Kuli off Africa. There is no firm evidence supporting either identification.
