It is one of the four exclaves surrounded by the Eastern Sovereign Base Area of Akrotiri and Dhekelia, a British Overseas Territory administered as a Sovereign Base Area. The others are the village of Xylotymvou and Dhekelia Power Station. It is administered by the Republic of Cyprus. Its population in 2011 was 4,189.

Archaeological objects found in the village are displayed at various museums. A stele with the "syllabic funerary inscription Panroses" is on display at the Larnaca District Archaeological Museum.[citation needed]
