Tsunami Monument honors the victims of a 2004 tsunami that claimed the lives of more than 100 people, destroyed countless buildings, and left nearly two-thirds of Male flooded in the aftermath. The spiraling monument stands on the edge of the sea in memory of those who were affected by the tragedy. Ponder the incredible power of nature as you look out over the sobering memorial and the waters beyond. Plan my day in Male using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

  • Tsunami Monument is a must-see if you fancy history and culture. This commemorates the people who passed away due to the 2004 Tsunami. It is easily reached by foot from the jetty.

  • Tsunami Monument is built on the Boduthakurufaanu Magu (acclaimed area in the Maldives) on the southeast part of Male city, Maldives. The Tsunami Monument is a remembrance of the people who lost their lives in the 2004 Tsunami, which started from Aceh, Indonesia (It’s known for seashores). The ocean encompassing of this landmark is one of the best spots for surfing inside Male. The commemoration plan represents various parts of the 2004 Tsunami (arrangement of waves in a water body) in the Maldives. Numerous people lost their livelihood and their near and dears. A visit to the landmark is a passionate token of the disaster that unfolded that day. The region is also a respected spot for a casual walk or calm contemplation.
  • Very beautiful place but it needs new decoration and design in the area overall I love the place
