Few people can locate them on a map, but most Comoros are of mixed Afro-Arab descent. Swimming between Mozambique and Madagascar, this archipelago has long been a crossroads of civilization.
The Comoros practice Sunni Islam and Chafetian rites, but their social organization is matrilinear and their residence matrimotic. In addition to their religious holidays, they celebrate the birth of the Prophet, the birthday of a local saint, and the wedding of their children.
The port of Moroni is the second largest in the world with a population of about 1.5 million people in terms of visitor numbers and volume. The population density is about 2,000 people per square kilometre.
There are also flights to Madagascar, Tanzania and Reunion, but according to locals, flights are delayed. There is a good connection that Kenya Airways offers from Nairobi, but you don't expect facilities. However, there is only one international airport in the Comoros, which is located 20 km north of the capital Moroni. The airport is tiny, with only one gate, and there are no direct flights from other countries, although the best connection via Kenya Airlines is from the N Kenyan Airways base station. This is because so many people in the Comoros have families and the facilities are not as good as in other parts of Africa.
The Comoros have been visited by travellers from Africa, Madagascar, Indonesia and Arabia since the first Europeans met the islands, but they would be equally popular in other parts of Africa and the Middle East as they would be easily accessible. There is no information on when and how often to leave, or even if there is a direct flight from Kenya or Kenya Airways to Moroni or any of the other countries, but you get the idea.
Moroni is also the capital of the Republic of the Comoros (also known as Ngazidja), a republic consisting of three islands. The three main islands are Mayonette, Dzaoudzi and Moroni, and the other two islands are Sa - i - Ali and Sa'i Ali. In 1876, the Sultan of Sa '-i-Ali settled there and the settlement became the capital. It replaced the city of DzAoudzis, on the island of May on Mayo, as the country's capital in 1958.
The city centre is a landmark of Moroni, with buildings from the first Arab settlement. Other landmarks of Moroni are the Sa'i Ali Mosque, the Mosque of the Sultan of DzAoudzis and the Town Hall. The settlements in the north of Morona include Ikoni, Mvouni, Daoueni and Selea, while the settlements in the south are Bebe, Ikona, Dzaoudzi, Mayonette and May in May. Ikonia is a city of about 1,000 inhabitants east of Mai and south - west of Mayo and north - south of Sa '-i - Ali.
The SGTM has a comfortable boat, which sails from Moroni on the Grand Comore to Mutsamudu, Anjouan, Dzaoudzi and Mayotte. The boat is connected by boat to the town of Ikonia in the north, as well as to Sa'i Ali, Mayonette, Ikona, Mvouni, Daoueni and Selea, all of which are connected by boat to Moroni.
The capital of the Comoros is Moroni and is also the second largest city in the Comoros and the third largest in Africa after Port-au-Prince. The city is located on the south and east side of the Grand Comores, between the islands of Dzaoudzi and Selea. It covers an area of 2.5 square kilometres and is therefore reflected in the morphem constructed in the local Moronai language, as it is located at the intersection of two major rivers, the Mutsamudu and the Mvouni.
It should also be noted that the name "Moroni" is found in the local language of the Comoros and is mentioned by travellers as the capital of a sultan on the island of Ngazidja.
Although the 1830 edition of the Book of Mormon printed the name "Cumorah" as "Camorah," it is believed that Smith used the name for the island and applied it to the hill where he found the buried treasure and the gilded plates. There is speculation from non-Mormons about how Joseph Smith might have heard the names Moroni and Cumorah, which are not related to Captain Kidd. Could he have drawn it from a story he had read in his youth? Even today, it is claimed that Joseph heard the story of "Moroni" and "Cumora" from an American whaler who passed through Palmyra.
Could Joseph Smith have been given the names "Moroni" and "Cumorah" from a map of the Comorian archipelago off the coast of Africa? It is unlikely that he would have seen them, as the settlements of Meroni and Anjoun do not appear on any of these maps that appear to show the four islands. Although the name "Comoros" on the map is associated with the main island of Grande Comore, the settlement "Meroni," which borders on all four of these islands on this map, shows that it is one.
