Utheemu Palace Artefacts

The Maldives Heritage Survey Team has been working on HA. Utheemu to create new digital site documentation of the Kandhuvalu Miskiiy, and the Utheemu Palace.

In addition to 3D scans and architectural drawings of these structures on site, the Team is also cataloguing smaller items in the collections of the Utheemu Palace, including manuscripts in both Dhivehi and Arabic.

Beyond textual materials, our documentation also includes royal heirlooms in wood, metal and lacquer work. Complete data base records and photo sets of these objects will soon be made available on the MHS website.
