Scenes from Noonu Landhoo. These pictures took on May 2005.

Landhoo (Dhivehi: ލަންދޫ) is one of the inhabited islands of Southern Miladhunmadulhu Atoll, administrative code Noonu Atoll.
This island has large ruins from the historical Maldivian Buddhist era. On the northwest side of the island there is an ancient mound known as “Maabadhige Haitha” by the local people. This are the ruins of a Buddhist Stupa. The diameter of the mound is 292 feet and the height is 28 feet.
The remains in this island are probably the single most important Buddhist ruins in the Northern region of the Maldives.
