Located in front of the Friday mosque, Maldives Mulee Aage palace was built in the year 1906. The credit for its construction goes to the Sultan Mohamed Shamsuddeen III. It was before World War I that the Sultan built this palace for his son. However, when the Sultan was overthrown in May 1936, Muleeaage palace of Maldives was officially declared as the government's property.
In 1953, when Maldives became a republic, Mulee Aage palace became
the President's Official Residence. It was later in the year 1986
that it was renamed the Presidential Palace. However, in the present
times, this colonial style building serves as the office of
president, where official meetings are held. This spectacular
building with its beautiful white carvings definitely falls into the
category of must visit tourist attraction destinations.
