An Excellent landmark of the city , this fantastic building will tell you a lot about the people who leave near by , who study in this complex and who go there every day five times to pray , a must see place when you are in Male

The Friday mosque is a monument to the majority muslim population of Maldives. With an enormous mosque filled, I loved the building, its huge and well built for a small island country, i was shocked to see such a grand building. Its worth a tour if u are in Male

While roaming in Male city, one could easily locate this mosque from distance. Its close to sea side & ferry terminal. Nice interior & architectural beauty of this mosque is really praiseworthy. As a muslim, We loved to see such grand mosque. It is well maintained. Travellers need to follow dress codes while visiting this mosque.

A beautiful mosque with clean surroundings. However, visitors must know that they will have to remove shoes and will have to be covered below knees. And women have to be modestly dressed and cover their heads.

Exploring Male the night before a dive trip should include the Mosque. It is a lovely, quiet spot to remember the city by.

This huge modern building is not worth the effort to visit. The best view is from the airplane as you take off from Male International Airport.

Due to the fact that we visited while it was raining, we didn't really stay for long. But what we saw from the outside was nice, it was nice architecture but that's it, there wasn't really anything else other than a huge building.

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
