Mulee Aage

Mulee Aage’, built by the order of Sultan Shamsuddin III in 1913 for his son just before the First World War, is located in the centre of the capital. Unfortunately, the Sultan was deposed and his son never took office. When the country became a Republic in 1953 the colonial style building was designated the Presidential Palace. The historical residence of the Sultans, with its intricate white carvings built by Maldivian designers and Shri Lankan architects, is a lovely, graceful complex.
