Ancient Bath

Vevu (Dhivehi) or bathing tanks, found on the heritage site, were used as public baths and later for ablution. The actual period of this Vevu is unknown, however sandstone used in construction is evidence pointing to the preislamic period. The symmetry of the two wells also suggests it may have been part of a temple.

Traditional House

The house follows the traditions of South Asian architectural designs. According to oral history it has existed in Raa Kandholhudhoo for more than 125 years. The house is built with teak panels and coral stone walls. The teak panels make up the facade and the interior dividing wall of the house. Measuring approximately 20×12 feet, it is furnished with functional pieces used for general living.
