The Maritime Asia Heritage Survey (MAHS) Maldives Field Survey Team has documented a former mosque complex on Kuredhivaru in Noonu Atoll. The site contains the ruins of a mosque and mausoleum (ziyaaraiyy), four wells, and a number of coral gravestones with ornamental carving. The entire site, however, is now under over a meter of water due to coastal erosion and subsidence, presenting a dramatic case of just how vulnerable heritage sites across the country are to environmental threats and climate change.

The full dataset for the site is currently being processed for upload to the MAHS online archive under record number (MAHS-MDV-NON-KRD-S-001). For open-access to our complete dataset of archaeological sites and historical artifacts from the Maldives, Indonesia, and other countries of the region, please visit us at: https://maritimeasiaheritage.cseas.kyoto-u.ac.jp
