History of Maldives


Archaeological and historical finds suggest that the islands have been dwelt for over three thousand years. Being on a significant trade route, Maldives was explored by people from all over the world, including Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East. These voyagers left a firm influence on the local people, their religion and the culture of the Maldives. In this way, a proud history and rich culture evolved during the course of time since the time of the first settlers and ultimately the assimilation of different cultures into the Maldivian culture has become a melting pot of different cultures. Some of the local Maldivian music and dance for example still correspond the influence of African culture with hand beating of drums and songs in a language that is not acknowledged to any but surely presents that of East African countries. Many evidence of South Asian customs have been found especially with regard to women - for example the Sub Continent’s tradition of sequestering women from public view - are not dogmas of life here.
