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!

This oldest mosque in Male was built with coral and limestone. Outside the building lied mausoleum of the previous Sultan and their relatives.Inside the building is the magnificent decoration made from wood. Truly worth to visit once in lifetime.
