Best of the Maldives: Graveyard – Filitheyo

Filitheyo - graveyard

“Darkness falls across the land
The midnite hour is close at hand
Creatures crawl in search of blood
To terrorize y’awl’s neighbourhood
And whosoever shall be found
Without the soul for getting down
Must stand and face the hounds of hell
And rot inside a corpse’s shell
The foulest stench is in the air
The funk of forty thousand years
And grizzly ghouls from every tomb
Are closing in to seal your doom”

– Vincent Price, Thriller

Happy Halloween! Most resorts will be dressing up a bit for Halloween today with special activities for the kiddies and some extra colourful festivities for the adults. But if you want something a bit more than some orange and black crepe paper, then Filitheyo features its very own “spooktacular” mystery graveyard…

“When the island was being cleared for the construction of the resort, a graveyard marked by approximately 30 headstones was discovered about 25m inland from the south-west shore. The origins of those buried and the reason for their burial on the island is unknown.”

    Having holidayed at the island and being intrigued by the graveyard, as to who they are, and where did they get the stone from?. What type of stone is it, as this would help solve the puzzle. The holiday was fabulous and Staff etc. first class!. I would like to form a team to investigate this, so please let me know who to contact.

  2. Colin – Interesting proposal indeed. I would start with trying to contact the resort, Filitheyo.
