Background
Site DescriptionThis coral stone mosque was built in 1701 by Sultan Ibrahim Muzhir al-Din (r. 1701-1704). It is still in use and in good condition, but it has gone by various names over the three centuries of its history. The original mosque is now covered by a corrugated metal roof with modern wall all around to preserve the older monument from the elements. Two wooden Qur'an chests (foiyy foshi bahatta) on site contain manuscripts (HAF-IVD-1-MS1, HAF-IVD-1-MS2) gifted to the mosque’s endowment. In the cemetery surrounding the mosque are a stand-alone minaret, a well, a bisthaan, a ziyaarat, and 359 coral gravestones.
Project DescriptionThe Maldives Heritage Survey works to systematically inventory and digitally document the endangered cultural heritage of the Maldives. The materials documented through this work are critically endangered, facing both natural and human threats that jeopardize the survival and accessibility of historical information for this vital node in pre-modern global economic and religious networks at the cross-roads of an interconnected Indian Ocean world. The data made available here was collected by our Field Team using a FARO Focus S350 Lidar scanner, a Nikon D750, and a DJI Phantom 4 Pro drone for photogrammetry.
