Site DescriptionThis Ziyaarat complex around the shrine of Sharif Ali al-Makki also includes five flagpoles, a well, a scale pole, and a visitors’ lodge. The last structure formerly housed a collection of manuscripts, which were still present during a 2013 site inspection tour by the Maldives Department of Heritage. When the MHS documented the site in November 2019, however all had disappeared except for one small ruined fragment (HAF-MTR-MS1).
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.
