Each island to have a website for historical landmarks, artefacts

Ministry of Arts, Culture and Heritage have announced the decision to establish special history and heritage centres in each island and ensure information on historical landmarks and artefacts is available from websites of every Maldivian island.

Speaking in an interview to the PSM show Raajje Miadhu, State Minister for Arts, Culture and Heritage, Mohamed Toriq said it was the goal of the ministry to ensure websites of every Maldivian island has all information regarding the islands, including its historical landmarks and artefacts.

Toriq stressed that historical information of Maldivian islands should not be locked away in the national archives.

“Someone who wishes to obtain information, for example, regarding the Maabudhuge at Landhoo shouldn’t have to come to the Heritage Department of the ministry. The information should be available from the Landhoo website. The information that original artefacts found from the Landhoo Maabudhuge area can be viewed from the National Museum,” said Toriq.

He said the ministry plans on protecting and maintaining historical landmarks and artefacts in Maldivian islands and establishing centres to disseminate information on such sites and items, and creating copies of historical artefacts kept at the National Museum for display in islands of its origin.
