Màjmal

The city of Màjmal is the capital of both the region of Gurdia (Gyrdja) and the province of Gyrdja a Pryndim. Historically, Màjmal also was the capital of the entire island, including the Voskian settlements in the west and south. The city is located south of the central point of the province, on an elevation between the rivers Dyşe, north of the city, and Marðe, on the south. In 2011, Màjmal had 114,895 inhabitants.

It has a rather byzantine/ottoman character, having been part of the Ottoman empire for many decades. Màjmal is home to the Amet Beg mosque, which is the largest religious building of Voskia.
