Once under French dominion and later a British colony, Mauritius became part of the British Commonwealth after Independence in 1968. Because of the beauty of its unspoiled inland and the changing colours of its lagoon surrounded by coral reefs, Mauritius has been called the floating garden of the ocean. From all over the world a melange of peoples have come to this island: Creole, Indian, Pakistani, Chinese, European, each with their own customs, yet united by one name: Mauritian.
