Reviewed August 29, 2012

In the crowd of the vivid city placed on a small island, This tiny mosqe is a Real surprise. High modern office buildings arourd and ten in few steps small quiet oasis, with some green and beautiful mosqe in the middle. It is posible to Enter to the grounds and look the wall decorations and delicacy of the artefacts. If in Male, "sacrifice" hali your and visit it.

“quick visit”
Reviewed May 30, 2012

was surprised to see that not all visitors were covered up... we had to wrap ourselves in sarongs top and bottom although we were wearing sleeved tshirts... too hot and still as no fans/electricity switched on. not very much to see..
