#13 of 32 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.

  • We went around the seat of the President, they saw a beautiful gate, looking for a guard, but nothing more. The public is probably closed. But even so, it's a nice seat.

  • Very close to the main square (I think that's why many have become confused), is the House of the President, against the old mosque and the cemetery. It has a beautiful architecture, with colorful decorations. Another place to meet in Male, since many do not have.

  • Mule-agay-Palace, built at the beginning of the last century to Sultan Mohamed Shamsuddina III. In 1953 he became the first of the Presidential Palace. The Palace, built in Senegalese style, looks cute and elegant. True, consider it succeeded only because of the fence.

  • Sultan Shamsuddin III built the former Presidential Palace, Muleeaage, for his son just before the First World War. However the Sultan was deposed and his son never took office. In 1953, with the declaration of the First Republic, the building was designated as the Presidential Palace and remained so until the new Presidential Palace at Theemuge was built. Now Hilaaleege is the official residence of the president and Theemuge is the Supreme Court.
  • It is one of the most historical place in Maldives
  • 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.
