Site DescriptionThis is the largest historic Muslim cemetery in the Maldives, containig 1,535 carved coral gravestones and a number of other structures including four mosques and a stand-alone minaret, as well as the Medhu Ziyaaraiy - the best-preserved mausoleum on the site which is associated with Yusuf Naib, who is traditionally credited with the early Islamization of the island. As the cemetery remains in active use for contemporary burials, it is vulnerable to ongoing disturbance as old and sometimes elaborately-carved coral stones are sometimes moved and re-used to mark the nearby graves of newly deceased.
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 FARO Focus S350 Lidar scanner and Nikon D750, Drone DJI Phantom 4 Pr for photogrammetry).
