Site DescriptionFormer concrete mosque of uncertain, but modern date. During the Presidency of Maumoon Abdul Gayoom (1978-2008) the building was used for women to take fardhu or tarawih prayer on Ramadan. According to Husheedh Rashadh, a local resident, the mosque was maintained by the local council at that time. The building is no longer in use but survives in fair condition. The building lies within a small compound defined by an older coral rubble wall (KFA-KSD-5-S1). The compound appears to now be used for cultivating plants.
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).
