Site DescriptionThis cemetery site formerly included a coral stone mosque, which was razed after the construction of a large new mosque next door. The largest standing structure on site is the Kuda Ziyaarat (mausoleum shrine) making the burial of Hasan Badr al-Din - an Arab migrant who had served as a judge (qadi) on the island, as well as a sundial, and over 200 carved coral gravestones.
Project DescriptionMaldives 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 Drone DJI Phantom 4 Pr for photogrammetry.).
