Posted in Life by Mohamed Abdulla Shafeeg on November 19, 2007

Velidhoo (Dhivehi: ވެލިދޫ) is one of the inhabited islands of Noonu Atoll. The origin of the first settlers of the Velidhu Island still remains a mystery. The historians date early settlers back to 5th century BC with the Aryan immigrants coming from neighboring countries India and Srilanka. According to early settlers the Veliduans we found today mix up of people from the near two islands in the atoll. The Magoodhoo and Tholhendhoo Island and today Velidhu is found as the island with highest population count within the atoll. The Veliduans’ language is Dhivehi .
