#12 of 24 in Things to do in Male
Located at the historical center of Male, Mulee Aage saw long service as the official residence of the president of the Maldives. Known for its colorful facade, this palace was used on and off until 2012 and now serves as a governmental office for holding meetings. Though you cannot see the interior, you can stand next to the front gates and take a few photos of the landmark building. Most walking tours around the city stop outside the palace. Our Male tour planner makes visiting Mulee Aage and other Male attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

    It is a building painted in white and blue, in front of the old mosque (that of the wide Minaret and circular and also painted white and blue). It is pleasant, without being exceptional. There is also, in a small building that overlooks the street, (Medhu Ziyaarali) Tomb of the Moroccan Barakat to the Berberi, here introduced islam in 1153. Both the photo of cover with a huge flag and the comments that talk about it, not have to do with this Palace.

    It is a building with a flag and a square in front of it, much more to say there, photo with that great flag in the background is cute but not really much more than that

    The construction of Mulee’aage, was initiated in the year 1914 and completed in 1919. It was commissioned by Sultan Muhammad Shamsuddeen III for his son and heir Prince Hassan Izzuddin. It was built on the style of bungalows in vogue during the colonial era in Ceylon and completed in preparation for the return of Prince Hassan Izzuddin to Male’ in 1920 after completing his education at the Royal College of Colombo.

    Former official residence for the President. It is very colourful and at a glance looks like a school. Located across the road from Friday Mosque. As the gate is closed it is not possible to see what's inside.

Where to stay in Male

Due to the city's dense population, you may be hard-pressed to find spacious accommodations at any time of year in Male. If you're here in transit to one of the surrounding resorts, you may not be able to avoid Male's high prices, as transfers to the islands are generally only possible during daylight hours. The rooms in the hotels, bed and breakfasts, and guesthouses of Male are on the whole clean, if basic. For more affordable options head to the nearby isle of Hulhumale: a ten-minute boat ride away, this spot proves popular with backpackers.
