Info about Male


Malé is the capital of the Republic of Maldives and is regarded as one of the smallest capitals of the world in terms of physical size. The city, an exotic blend of ethnicity and modern values, is a place with high-rise buildings and good infrastructure. Malé, pronounced ‘Maa-lay’, is home to over 80,000 inhabitants.
Distinguished by a tropical climate, which ranges from humid to dry, Malé boasts of pleasant weather for most of the year. Monsoons make their presence felt from March through November. The climate is largely influenced by the monsoon winds.
Formerly, Malé was an enclosed city with numerous forts but it was remodelled to become an urban centre of trade. Today, the city is a commercially active zone with tourism being the largest industry, followed by fishing and agriculture.

Overall Guide : A masterpiece of ethnic workmanship and arched corals is the Huskuru Miskiiy Mosque. The walls and the panels display intricate Arabic inscriptions. A minaret and a cemetery are also a part of this mosque. The National Museum, located in Sultan Park,... more is a stylish colonial construction which houses a variety of artefacts from the earlier days, giving an insight into the history and culture of the place. Some of the articles displayed here include the thrones used by the sultans and the first printing press in the country. Shoppers can indulge at the Majeedhee Magu, where they will find outlets stocked with garments, cosmetics, jewellery, electronics and much more. The Islamic Centre is the most significant architectural landmark of Malé. The spectacular golden dome is its most attractive feature. Apart from a library, a conference hall and offices, the centre houses a huge mosque accommodating around 5000 people.

Overall Guide : Male, is the caoital city of Maldives. Many people live in Male, compare to its land capacity. Tourist visit Maldives to enjoy the pure white sandy beaches and crystsl clear sea and the colourful coral gardens in its under water.... more It's like a paradise and there is no place like this. All its 1200 Islands are so attractive to nature lovers.

Overall Guide : Male' is a nice place according to me.. There are many historical places and nice places to be seen.. but still there are some things that I think it has to improved.. Like I think the things at the shops... more are quite expensive and not very affordable for some people.. So as a tourist I would vote 6 for Male' in average.. Thank You!

Overall Guide : Male is a beautiful island to be watched from the top (from flight). Here local people are not co-operative apart from a few, there are lot of problematic guys especially youth who have no respect towards anything.
