“modern design”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

wide hall to accommodate a good number of people having a simple modern design. Parking space for cars appears to be limited but then this a common problem of this small island.

“Huge and inspiring”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

Worth seeing and going inside to take a close look. The carved arabic inscription are interesting. You will need to be modestly dressed - long trousers for and women with covered shoulders.

“Big Mosque”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

Huge mosque, it was really nice, they had this place to learn the Holy Qu'ran, and it was built by many of the international leaders, e.g UAE president, Pakistan President, Turkey President, etc. all of them combined financially i think and built it. Some thing i never knew.

“The Largest Mosque in the Maldives”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

Funded by Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Malaysia and Brunei, Grand Friday Mosque (opened 1984) is the republic's largest that can accommodate 5000+ worshippers, its golden dome and slender minaret among Male's most recognisable landmarks. Outside prayer times, an official guide usually hanging out at the entrance can show you around if respectfully dressed (long trousers required for men). The mosque itself is strikingly plain, lacking any architectural details, but at least the guide is willing to take photos for you and never asks for a tip.
