Visitors to the Maldives over the next five days (from 15 October) will observe the occasion of Eid-ul-Al’ha known as Big Eid!
This five day festival follows the Hajj day – which marks the end of a spiritual journey all muslims are advised to make to Mecca at some point in their lives.
In the Maldives the days following Hajj are a joyous celebration where many escape the capital and head out to the islands to enjoy traditional festivities.
Muslims will greet each other with the words “Eid Mubarak!” So, if you are visiting the Maldives during this time, please take time to appreciate the festival and try and arrange a trip out to the islands.
