Ibn Batuta in the Maldives and Ceylon by Albert Gray

By: Albert Gray

Format: Hardback

The diary of Ibn Battuta, the famous Moroccan traveller of the 14th Century who spent about nine months in Maldives between 1343 and 1344.

He became a Court advisor, married and divorced countless times, shared his abode with concubines and slaves, and tried, unsuccessfully, to make Maldivian women cover their bodies.

His account remains one of the most interesting ever written, except perhaps that of Pyrard de Laval.
