  • Maubara (Maubere) ist ein osttimoresischer Ort und Subdistrikt im Distrikt Liquiçá.
  • Maubara is a village in East Timor and is a subdistrict of the district of Liquiçá, just west of the city of Liquiçá. During the beginning of the Portuguese occupation, it was taken by the Netherlands. There is a historic Dutch fort, located at the entrance to the village on the seaside overlooking the bay. The fort still contains the original cannon and is quite well preserved. Later, Portugal negotiated with Holland and regained the site in a trade for Flores, which was occupied by the Portuguese at that time. The village is also the location in which the infamous Besi Merah Putih militia was created. In 2000, on the western outskirts of the village, the UNTAET Crime Scene Detachment conducted sixteen exhumations in two days, most being victims of the Manuel Carrascalão House Massacre. Most of the inhabitants speak Tocodede.
  • A vila costeira de Maubara está situada nas coordenadas (8°37'S, 125°12'E) na região montanhosa coberta por floresta tropical em Timor-Leste, no distrito de Liquiçá, a oeste da cidade de Liquiçá. A maior parte da população fala Tocodede. Os Países Baixos ocuparam Maubara, o que é testemunhado pela presença das ruínas de uma fortaleza neerlandesa, sobranceira à baía. Maubara, que era um enclave em territórios portugueses de Timor, passou, já no século XIX, para o domínio português em troca pela ilha de Flores até então controlada pelos portugueses. A cidade esteve presente no noticiário internacional em setembro de 1999 devido a vários casos de estupro e assassinato cometidos pelo grupo rebelde Besi Merah Putih em oposição ao voto de independência timorense.
