“Charming little mosque”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2012

This is a charming little mosque made out of coral stone, with pretty wood carvings and enamel work inside (though it is a pity that it has a corrugated iron roof). Outside there is a stone minaret which reminded me more of a lighthouse, and a small graveyard. Non-Muslims are not usually allowed inside the mosque, but it may be possible to get a peek outside prayer times if you are suitably dressed and get permission from one of the officials outside the mosque.

“A little gems located at Male”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2011

I found this site at UNESCO waiting list tentative heritage site before I really visit this site where it is a unique little mosque with rich cultural and history of Maldives.

Tips : Visit Male with a walking tour around the central where the souvenir shops located, Then walk towards the independence square of maldives. Visit the Islamic center and then the Hukuru Miskiiy is in the middle of the city (behind Trader Hotel).
