Overview of Jumhooree Maidhaan

The Jumhoorie Maidan is one of the most popular destinations in Male. It is one of the trendiest destinations for gatherings, be it among locals or foreign tourists. The place is also known as the Republic Square or Independence Square.

The venue is filled with lush green grass, and there are also fertile plantations. The plantation is very prominent along the northern waterfront. During the day you will see children and adults gathered around the place.

Various types of recreational activities abound. The country’s official flag post is on the eastern side. The flag at the Jumhoorie Maidan is the largest in Maldives.

The Sultan Park and National Museum is also close to the square. This used to be the palace of the Sultan, but now only the building remains.

"Jumhoree Maidhaan, also known as Republic Square is located between the fish market and the main jetties. During the day you can see lots of locals and expats around, especially from India and Bangladesh. It has a few sitting options underneath a couple of trees, making it a perfect rest and relax area after some shopping, and an opportunity to watch people. Tip: avoid the area if you should hear of any demonstrations in Male. It didn't happen recently, but often in 2011/2012. "

Kay J. wrote about Guisi Lighthouse :

"It takes about 40 minute tricycle ride to this 18th century Spanish lighthouse from Alibihod Crossing. The dusty road can be challenging, but it is definitely worth the trip. Climbing the now dilapidated, rusty, not well preserved lighthouse can be very dangerous. Those who dare can marvel at the breathtaking view of Nueva Valencia and the surrounding beaches. I would not recommend taking the risk though. The lighthouse does not look strong enough to hold weight and it could collapse anytime.
