Holidays & Observances in The Maldives

The Maldives is an archipelago in the Indian Ocean. It is made up of over a thousand islands, about 200 of which are inhabited. A vast majority of the population practices Islam, but Buddhism and Hinduism have both helped shape the culture of the Maldives, brought to the country by nearby countries before Islam arrived. Today Islam is integrated into every part of the culture, and its holidays are extremely important.
