Maldives Festivals and Events


Bodu Eid
Every Muslim must go on pilgrimage to the Holy City of Mecca, at least once in their lifetime if. After the completion of the annual Haj prayer, Bodu Eid is celebrated where there are special prayers, feasts and Eid games.


Kuda Eid (Small Eid)
Maldives, 19 January 2000
Kuda Eid represents the end of Ramadan and is also known as Eid al-Fitr. It is celebrated when the new moon is sighted, which is usually announced by a canon in Male and via television. The day starts with a prayer and is followed by a special lunch for the family members to get together. In the afternoon, the main streets are filled with a festive atmosphere, people dressed in their new clothes, colourful bands and route marchers. The less fortunate are also not forgotten as offerings, money or food are given to charity. Everybody is greeted with Eid Mubarak (Eid Greetings!) and cards are given to relatives and friends.
