Timor is an island at the south of the Malay Archipelago, divided between the independent state of East Timor, and West Timor, part of the Indonesia province of East Nusa Tenggara with the surface of 11,883 sq mi/ 30,777 km≤. The name is a variant of timur, Malay for "east"; it is so called because it is at the east end of a chain of islands.
