Apart from the crystal waters, white sandy beaches and incomparable sense of tropic, the Maldives has a rich culture and an interesting long history.
Kuruhinna Tharaagandu, a Buddhist site on Kaafu Atoll Kaashidhoo, is one of the most important reminders of the nation’s Buddhist past.
Archaeologists revealed that the monastery was half a mile (1 kilometer) long. Some 64 circular and semi-circular stone structures were discovered, the majority consisting of only their lower parts. All were constructed from coral taken from the sea.
If you’re a culture enthusiast, hire a local guide to visit the historical site and there are a number of excellent hotels nearby.
