The mosque was nice and made of coral, this intrigued me. The information about the mosque is placed outside the entrance. There is a dress code placed outside although it seemed like it wasn't being followed in general.

If you are on maafushi island you will not miss any of its attractions since it is so small . You will anyway find them even if you are not looking for them. This one is good one in the middle of the island.
