The beautiful land, Lakshwadeep is dotted with monuments. Amidst the brilliance of the coral reefs, palm trees, sandy beaches and clear waters the monuments of Lakshwadeep stand as the historical relics, reminding of the days faded long ago. Each of the monuments of Lakshwadeep represents the great historical grandeur of this union territory. The tomb of Hazrat Ubaidullah, Moidin Mosque, Urja Mosque and several Buddhist archaeological remains are some of the major monuments of this island that attracts millions of tourists over the year.
The tombs of Hazrat Ubaidullah laced with its antiquity stand as one of the important monuments of Lakshwadeep.
Another major monument of Lakshwadeep is the Light House at Minicoy Island. Constructed by the British regime in 1883, to provide them a vantage point for many sea battles, this monument of Lakshwadeep murmurs the history buried long ago. This monument of Lakshwadeep is constructed in a wonderful architectural style by the combination of skilled artisans of Gallie (Sri Lanka) and the local islanders. The entire Light House was built in brick masonry where the specific black bricks were used for its entire construction.
The construction of another important monument of Lakshwadeep, Urja mosque at Kavaratti is again entirely different from the other monuments of that region. It is a wood-carving construction in a typical Islamic architecture that makes it unique. The monuments of Lakshwadeep thus with their colossal architecture and historical value reveal the facts of the days gone long ago.
