One of the few preserved mosques in the city. Calm and peaceful surroundings . The tombstones in the courtyard adds to history of the mosque.

The old mosque and the surrounding courtyard is a nice and quiet place to take a break from all the chaos and traffic on the narrow noisy streets. It offers a glimpse of what Maldives look like before the colonial era. The courtyard and cemetery is open to all, but to enter the mosque, there is sign saying non-muslims must... More

We visited the Friday Mosque on a walking tour of Male. The coral carvings were nice. The walking tour billed as 2.25 hours lasted 40 minutes and was a complete waste of time. The guide was terrible, uninformative, and cut the museum and fish, fruit and vegetable markets from the tour. He gave us 20 minutes to shop for useless... More

This is a very old historic mosque, if you look at it closely its made completely from crushed shell. The interiors are old and take you back in time, for a country like maldives it gives you an insight of the people and their deep rooted culture and heritage
