“Amazing architecture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Really great for architecture lovers with coral carvings. But keep a dollar handy to pay the local who will try and usher you around for a quick buck.
The graves are amazing and the place is real quite though no shade around.

“Make sure to dress appropriately”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

This mosque was interesting but certainly doesn't compare to others in the Islamic world. I had to make sure to wear a long skirt and a tshirt so that I wouldn't offend when visiting the mosque.

“Interesting for history buffs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

While as a non-Muslim I could only see the outside of this mosque, it was still really interesting to look at this old, beautiful mosque and the tombs outside. The lighthouse looking minaret out the front is also very interesting.

“The only authentic mosque in Male'”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Has an extremely quiet feeling. The tombs of nobles long past can be found, while the tomb of the recently late president of the Maldives, Ibrahim Nasir, is present. The garden is spectacular. However, the Pond is unclean and the water fountain, once extremely beautiful, has now fallen into disrepair.

“Interesting piece of Maldivian history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

Islam was introduced to the Maldives by a morrocan trader in the 12th century and his tomb now stands in the grounds of the Hukuru Miskiiy Moqsue, The Mosque itself has many inscriptions and looks tranquil amongst the hustle/bustle of Maale.
