Fali’Jehun (Man propelling a small vessel using traditional oars):
In the Maldives for hundreds of years vessels were powered either by sails, or the mechanical work of oarsmen, or paddlers. Some ancient vessels were propelled by either oars or sail, depending on the speed and direction of the wind, in the modern days it’s rare to spot this method of propelling a boat but as you see in the picture, even today some islands of the Maldives is practicing this ancient method.

You can witness this in the Maldives, and if you want to try this out. Visit to Maldives
