Recently resurfaced Historic well in Utheemu has been moved to Boduthakurufaanu Memorial Center (BMC). 

According to Utheemu council, Well was moved to BMC as per the guidance from Heritage, with assistance from staff of BMC, Council, and Police Desk. Moreover, the council appreciated all who assisted in moving the Well to the BMC.

The Well was resurfaced in the westside of the Island due to severe coastal erosion. And several historic items have been previously found from that area of the Island where the Well resurfaced.

In addition, according to the council, it is estimated that the Well was built at the same time as Utheemu Palace, if so Well will be from 500 years ago.
