A large impressive building but it flatters to deceive. It would appear that the Maldives does not have much history. If they have to display the first telephone and first typewriter on the islands (and they do) then that should tell you everything you need to know. If they concentrated on the natural history (and there is an abundance) then it may just be worth a visit. Male' isn't worth a trip either. The Maldives are a wonderful place for visiting, especially if you scuba dive, but avoid the capital.
