Listed under Tombs & Memorials in Malé, Maldives.

Pin It

Medhu Ziyaaraiy is the tomb of Abu-al Barakath Yusuf al Barbaree, who was the Moroccan scholar thought to have been the one to introduce Islam to the Maldives in the 12th Century. A few maintenance changes have been made to the shrine, but it's largely as it's always been.
