Mohamed Thakurufaanu is considered one of the most significant national heroes in the Maldives and this great figure’s tomb can be visited in the capital Male. Staying at luxury hotels Maldives is an ideal way for you to enjoy the best the country has to offer and one option worth considering is Kurumba Maldives. A leading name amongst Maldives resorts, this charming property also offers excursions to Male where one can visit the Mohamed Thakurufaanu Tomb.

Mohamed Thakurufaanu is known for his role in leading the nation against the Portuguese who occupied the country at the time. After liberating the Maldives he became the sultan in 1573 and ruled for 12 years. This historical figure’s tomb can be found at the mosque known as Bihuroazu Kamanaa Miskiiy. The tomb is relatively simple in design, though the efforts of this national hero are by no means small and are remembered by Maldivians even today.
