This is a coral mosque and the oldest in Maldives. It was a Buddhist royal structure before it became a Islam republic.

If you are interested about this old mosque, then you should visit it. I didn't go inside, but also from the outside it was an interesting sight. Don't forget to visit the House of the Maldivian Prime Minister which is directly on the opposite road, in front of the Old Friday Mosque.

The Hukuru Miskiiy is a fascinating emblem of Malé and is the oldest mosque in the city. With unique architecture and design, it’s worth visiting for an understanding of Maldivian history and culture.

The mosque is worthy of your visit. It's a very small mosque with lots of history. It is still being used as of today.

It is under renovations so one can only see it from outside, but one can look at the building and admire the art work.

A two minute walk from Jetty #2, this mosque is easily spotted thanks to its beautiful minaret. A very traditional construction and somewat unconventional one for a Muslim mosque too. Recommended visit.

This is a very interesting building. It was built in the 1600's out of coral blocks. The blocks have some great carvings. It was not open so we did not go in. There is also a cemetery on the grounds.
