Spent some time at Malé....one of the smallest capital city in the world.

There are a number of historical sites and monuments here, which serve as popular tourist attractions of the city. One of the most famous tourist attractions of the city is the National Museum. The museum displays the personal belongings of the Sultan of Maldives.

Another popular monument in Male is the Islamic Center and the Grand Friday Mosque. These buildings are known for their grand golden domes. The Friday Mosque is known as Hukuru Miskyii. It is the biggest mosque of the country, with beautiful minarets and decorative domes. The mosque houses the tombs of national heroes of the country. The mosque can accommodate around five thousand people at one point of time.
