Utheemu Ganduvaru - Maldives

Located on the Utheemu Island, one of the inhabited islands of the Haa Alif Atoll, Utheemu Ganduvaru is popular as the birthplace of Sultan Mohamed Thakurufaanu. Thakurfaanu and his brothers are remembered for having fought a war to evict the Portuguese from Maldives for fifteen years.
The Utheemu Ganduvaru is essentially the wooden palace in which Sultan Mohamed Thakurufaanu grew up and has been very well maintained over the years and portrays the lives of the affluent many years ago.
