Site DescriptionThis structure was formerly used as a Mawloodhu-Ge, as recital hall for deovotional readings of texts to celebrate the birth of the Prophet Muhammad. After new forms of islamic reformism became popular in the Maldives in the 1980s, these practices were abandoned. The Mawloodhu-Ge was built on the site where Mohamed Thakurufaanu and his two brothers stayed while working on their famous boat named Kalhuoh Fummi.
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 and a Nikon D750 for photogrammetry.
