It's basic and functional in many ways, but also has an air of expensive architectural design, as much as to make a statement of impression more than anything else. The Islam faith managed to convert the population from Buddhism in a record-breaking 5 year period....More

We got a guided tour which was nice. Normally you can´t get in unless you are a muslim. Nice airy building with a big room for worship. But nothing more to see.

it is a good opportunity to take a glimpse of the everyday maldivian lives. I observed how grand the structure in a small country. Take advantage to buy souvenirs.

I wasn't really sure about the entry requirements for non-Muslims, so decided not to go in. Just took a few snaps of the building from the outside.

Super piece of architectural design. This is a working place if worship rather than a tourist attraction but that will not stop you enjoying the exterior design.
