The only thing that remains of the 16th century Royal Palace is Sultan Park. Sultan Park is Public Park that stands as a testimony to the Palace’s grandiose. The Royal Palace was razed to the ground except for one three storey wing. There is a massive iron gate at the entrance that speaks of its former glory. Water Lilies and serene ponds welcome you to this green oasis. A welcome change from the chaos of the city, if you listen carefully, you could actually hear birdsongs at this place. The remnant wing of the palace has been converted to the National Museum which houses artefacts of Maldivian culture, including coins, royal antiques, furniture, coins, embellishments and armaments. A visit to this museum is a must for history lovers.

Sultan Park And National Museum, Male Reviews - Write a Review
Old Male' beach side is very historical site of Maldives. Most of kings are lived in this area.
Its being renovating one its finished it would be a beatuiful place to hangout to all ages. Soon it will be open to all
A nice place for break. This used to be part of the Palace when the Maldives was a sultanate (kingdom). The park is small (takes less than 3 minutes to cross the park from one end to the other) and you can hear the sound of vehicles horn in the adjacent roads. The only "quiet" place in Male'. From here you can easily visit the museum and the grand Mosque which are both within about 3 minute walking distance. The park has no toilets, no drinking water facilities and not enough seating arrangements. The park is in need of major repairs and maintenance.
Recently rebranded to Rasrani Park with kids playing areas
Most prominent area of Male' city. National library, national museum and children park Rasrani park is in this block.
