Maldives

The capital city of Maldives, Mahe is one of the world’s smallest national capitals. It serves as one of the main entry points for tourists visiting the island nation. The city is built on a grid pattern, facilitating easy navigation through the city. The Maldives is among the top romantic Honeymoon destinations in the world. But Mahe plays a small role in it. This city is where you’ll meet the native Maldivians. Bustling with shops, apartments, office buildings and mosques, Mahe is so densely populated that you might find yourself wondering if the city will drown under its own weight. Irrespective of what kind of vacation you are looking for in the Maldives, a short visit to Mahe is a must. It has gone from serving as the Kings residence to being a home of several presidents. As the Maldives is an Islamic state, there are a number of colourful mosques you can see. Capped with a distinctive golden dome, the Islamic Centre (Masjid-al-Sultan Muhammad Thakurufaanu Al Auzam) consists of a mosque and a library. The National Museum, in Sultan Park, showcases regional artefacts like ancient weapons and sultans' thrones. Within a gatehouse on the palace grounds lies Medhu Ziyaarai, the resting place of the man believed to have brought Islam to the Maldives. One can see a 17th-century mosque built of coral stone and housing intricate wood carvings in Hukuru Miskiiy. Beyond Mahe is where the tourists are. Pristine lagoons, sun-kissed beaches, and resorts that will make you want to stay in the Maldives forever. Complementing the superb hospitality is the rich marine life and opportunities for water activates like snorkelling, kayaking and so on. Because of these qualities, Maldives is on every list that talks about honeymoon destinations or romantic getaways.
