Events in Maldives

The Republic of the Maldives is a Muslim country, so for most holidays they follow the Islamic calendar which is lunar, so the dates vary from one year to the next.

 

Prophet Muhammad’s Birthday

Celebrated on the twelfth day of the third month in the Islamic calendar. It commemorates the birth of Muhammad. It is traditional to invite family and friends to eat delicious dishes prepared for the occasion.

 

Republic Day

Commemorates the abolition of the monarchy and the establishment of the republic on November 11, 1968. A colourful and lively celebration.

 

Fisherman’s Day

The country recognises the work of its fishermen and honours them with a celebration.

 

National Day

Celebrated on the first day of the third month of the lunar calendar. It commemorates Thakurufaanu’s victory in Malé over the Portuguese in 1573, ending their colonial invasion as they had established their own government after killing the Sultan of the Maldives. There are parades and marches through the street of the capital.

 

Ramadan

Celebrated during the ninth month of the Muslim calendar. It begins with the appearance of the new moon and ends with the appearance of the next, so the exact period varies from year to year. It is one of the most important festivals in the Maldives.

 

Kuda Eid Festival

Celebrated on the first day of the tenth month of the Islamic calendar. It's a 3-day celebration. This religious festival marks the end of Ramadan with the sighting of the new moon marked by a cannon shot in Malé broadcast on television. The mosque is visited early to offer prayers, make offerings and give alms to the poor, and seek divine blessings. Traditional dances are performed in the rural islands.
