Nice old mosque
Dec 2020
If you are interested about this old mosque, then you should visit it. I didn't go inside, but also from the outside it was an interesting sight. Don't forget to visit the House of the Maldivian Prime Minister which is directly on the opposite road, in front of the Old Friday Mosque.

Historical and cultural sight

The Hukuru Miskiiy is a fascinating emblem of Malé and is the oldest mosque in the city. With unique architecture and design, it’s worth visiting for an understanding of Maldivian history and culture.

It is under renovations so one can only see it from outside, but one can look at the building and admire the art work.

Coral Mosque
Feb 2020
This is a very interesting building. It was built in the 1600's out of coral blocks. The blocks have some great carvings. It was not open so we did not go in. There is also a cemetery on the grounds.
