The place is situated just against the presidential jetty and it was built in the style of cabins during pilgrim time in Ceylon, and was finished for the Prince Hassan Izzuddin who was returning from the royal College of Colombo after his education. The development of Muliaa'ge, was started in the year 1914 and finished in 1919.
Mulle which means new house was once the maternal home of Sham sudden and was then given to “SultanMuhammad Shamsuddeen III” who was the last possessor. It remained with the Huraa Dynasty rulers throughout its history. After a long period of disuse, the first president of the second republic, “Ibrahim Nasir Rannabandeyri Kilegefan” acknowledged this place as the Presidential Palace again the year in 1968.
I was really fascinated by the architectural beauty of this structure. I feel very lucky to choose this place as I love visiting historical places, museums, national parks and all. Tourists who are in love with structural engineering and architecture must visit the place. The historical richness of the place attracts most of the tourists here. I feel the tourist must visit the national museum first and then come to the place. This will help in better understanding the importance of Muliaage.
Interestingly the place is completely well secured by military guards. Though the building has a beautiful ambience, visitors are not allowed often for safety purpose. This place is the most significant and nicest places among the other castles, museums and mosques in Maldives; hence, a visit to Muliaage made me happy and contented.
