Great place to dwell in the cool of the tall trees in the surrounding forecourt pavements . The surrounds have been upgraded with interesting pavement designs in polished stone and new park being finished to create a worthwhile visitor experience in Male

It was a bit different Mosque. It don't look like normal Mosque. It was built in 1400 centuries. Nearby there is a cemetery of Sultans. It is opposite of President residence.

I was surprised they let me in without covering up. I had no shawl but loved the architecture. It was not busy but guess it was due to the timing. Next to it was the blast site and a park.

For a better experience try sitting in the park next to the mosque at about midday on Friday. You will find yourself surrounded by males seemingly just passing the time. As the Adhan is heard...
