About Sultan Park And National Museum, Male

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

  • The place is generally good. However proper barricades need to be installed to avoid children going into the gardened area.

  • It has a great view.. And love the Fountains BTW Love the Koi fishes

  • It's redesigned and made into the perfect master park for all families and is the biggest park in Male'.

  • Before it was renovated, when this place was known as Sultan Park, this was a beautiful green space, open to anyone. Now that it's been reopened, the place is covered is garish coloured lights, using a lot of electricity, and it is now not free for foreigners to access. Maldivians can access the park free of charge, but there is now a quite high fee for foreigners, meaning that migrant workers can no longer acess the park because they cannot afford the entrance fee.

  • A beautiful park adjacent to the republic square. And the sultan mosque. Ideal place ro visit in the evenings. Dancing fountain, swings for the kids or just to sit in the park. A ticket of 75mvr is to be given by the foreignrs for entry
