Information ANTANANARIVO
GeneralAntananarivo, which was formerly known as Tananarive, is the capital and biggest city in Madagascar which is located in southern Africa. Antananarivo is also known by it?s French colonial nickname Tana. The surrounding area of Antananarivo which is known as Antananarivo-Renivohitra is the capital of the Analamanga Region. Major industries in Antananarivo include textiles, food products and cigarettes. Antananarivo means the City of the Thousand. It was founded by King Andrianjanka in around 1625 and recieved its name from the number of soldiers who guarded it. In 1895 Antananarivo was captured by the French and included in the Madagascar protectorate. The city was then renovated and the population grew from 100,000 to 175,000. After Madagascar gained its independence in 1960 the population grew very quickly. By the end of the 20th century the population of Antananarivo was up to 1.4 people. In the 19th century James Cameron and other missionaries from the London Missionary Society introduced brick and stone to Antananarivo and the entire city was rebuilt. The city now has many European style buildings among them the royal palaces, the former prime minister residence, The Roman Catholic and Anglican cathedrals and others. In the east there are two forts which guard the city. There are over 5,000 churches in Antananarivo and in the surrounding suburbs. Antananarivo has mild temperatures. The rainy season falls between April and November and while the days are generally pleasant and sunny the nights tend to be chilly. The currency in Antananarivo used to be the Franc Malgache but recently became obsolete. The currency is now called the Ariary which is worth about 5 Francs. Antananarivo has many stray dogs which are known to harass people and chase them away. Many locals refer to Antananarivo as ?Ataybe? which means place of much poop.
