One of the oldest mosque at Male'. This is build using carved coral boulders. The grounds of this mosque were used as burial place for kings.

Easy to access this place and very close to the presidents jetty. Can travel alone within few minute. By walking around you could see some other interesting places too. Can get photos in and around.
