Funadhoo Mosque on Fuvahmulah

This site on the island of Fuvahmulah in Gnaviyani Atoll contains the ruins of the Funadhoo Miskiyy (mosque), as well as a ziyaarat (mausoleum shrine) and a number of bisthaan (burial enclosures) and carved coral gravestones. 

According to local tradition, the island of Fuvahmulah has been abandoned and re-settled repeatedly over the centuries. In the course of that history, some early mosques were significantly renovated and/or reconstructed. Local oral tradition holds that an earlier version of this mosque had a verandah on the south side, but none exists on the present structure.

The full site records of this complex are available on the project database under GNI-FUD-1
