Adrar (Arabic: ولاية أدرار‎, Berber languages: ⴰⴷⵔⴰⵔ) is a province (wilaya) in southwestern Algeria, named after its capital Adrar. It is the second-largest province, with an area of 424,948 km², roughly the size of the US state of California. It had 402,197 inhabitants at the 2008 population census.[1]
