This weekend I got a chance to visit K. Kaashidhoo. I expected it to be a small island if not very small. At least that's what I heard. But, when I went I found that Kaashidhoo was not a small island. Though not as big as Hithadhoo, Kaashidhoo sure is a big island. The most important place that I was shown was the Kaashidhoo Tharaagandu, which as far as I know is the ruins of an a temple used by the Maldivians before the people embraced Islam.
This was a "protected" area in the island. There is controversy among some Maldivians now on whether we should protect such a place as a historical place or not. I don't know. I am not going to comment on that issue, at least not now. Maybe you can give your views on whether we need to protect such places or not. All I wanted was to share a photo of this historical Tharaagandu with the readers of my blog.

I am Rafiu Jameel from Addu City, Maldives. I use Alif Laam Gaaf as my pen name which stands for 'pen that loves fairness' ( Insaafah Loabikuraa Galan) Tell you the truth, I am not a so called IT person. However, if I never use internet , I'd stay a stranger of this wide network of information, which I am sure does not sound very good for a teacher in the 21st century. I am not someone who is so good in English either. Yet I am not someone who wish to make it a barrier for me to express what I think and what I believe. Thank you for visiting my blog. I welcome any comments or criticism that fits to the limits of Islam and constitution of Maldives. Indeed, I'd love to get your comments. :) Please, kindly refrain from using any foul words. Hope you'd enjoy my blog posts.
