Maldivian culture is chiefly related to the ocean, influenced by the cultures of South India and Sri Lanka. A local guide to Maldivian culture will help to uncover the prominent roots of this island’s heavenly beauty. The main source of inspiration in Maldivian culture is the ocean.

Divehi, the local Maldivian language is derived from the Sri Lankans’ local tongue, Sinhala. With the passage of time, Maldivians were introduced to the concept of Islam by the Arab travelers and hence it became an Islamic nation. Architectural testimonies to the Islamic culture include the fascinating mosques housed proudly in the capital of Maldives, Male. Maldives, in short, is a quaint blend of oceanic, Islamic and Sri Lankan cultures. Even the cuisine, that is rich in seafood, reflects the Sri Lankan and South Indian cultures as it is very spicy and aromatic in taste.
