Keydere Mosque in the Hoadhadu district of Fuvah Mulaku. Many old mosques such as this and others were not build aligned to Mecca as mosques are. The possible reason is that these were originally places of worship in pre-Islamic times, converted to mosques


An ancient stone bath near a the Keydere Mosque. Tha bath has been drained and a circular well built inside it. The well has been a more preferred means of communal ablution in Islamic times. The bath was favoured in pre-Islamic times


A shrine, of the type known as ziyaaraiy containing a tomb or occasionally a footstep of a folk saint, on the north western side of Fuvah Mulaku. Locals and people from as far as Addu and Huvadhu visit Gen Mosque and this ziyaaraiy to fulfill their vows. It is believed that the saint associated with the ziyaaraiy would intercede on behalf of the supplicant. The group of people in this picture do not look like pilgrims
