The Golden Dome is visible from afar especially if you are coming in by boat or plane. The grounds are wide and spacious. Since it is one of the few places to go, it would be a mandatory place to visit if you some time in Male.

... but that's it. It's not one of the most impressive mosques I've ever seen. It's very functional and sober. Still, if you're in the area, it's nice to walk around and take a look. Be aware that there's is a dress code to be allowed to get inside.

Visitors to Male, the capital of Maldives, must include this beautiful grand mosque in Male. It is apart being a mosque a center which serves multiple purposes. In the not so distance past it was a teaching center as well a conference venue.One cannot help noticing the immaculate cleanliness despite being a public place of worship.

It is definitely worth a visit and rich in history. Around the site is also worth walking to understand the history to the opening of Maldives. There were royal families in Maldives.
