A 350 y/o Mosque made of corals.. with tombs around made also of choral stones... if the coral tomb is pointed the deceased is Male, and if its curved, its Female. A must must visit!

An old mosque from the 17th century, with interesting architecture and unique minaret. Not much to do here, though.
