Ibn Batutta Travels to The Maldives
After travelling through the region of Kerala, Ibn Batutta, the traveller who started his journey from Tangiers to perform Hajj was now setting sail to explore the beautiful islands of Maldives. Here he spent more than he initially planned. After being appointed the Qadi of the Islands, he spent more than 9 months in the territory. Given his job he was intricately involved in the affairs of the rulers and the community, which eventually made him leave the Maldives to explore Sri Lanka.
