Old Friday Mosque – The Mosque of Wonder

This religious place is celebrated for having visitors of all beliefs walking into it only for the structural design and vision it offers.

The Mosque

Structured brilliantly with coral gravel that has complicated designs etched onto them, and therefore, these walls are a marvel to gaze at as the walls have wordings from the Quran written on them.

How to go there

To go into the mosque as a guest, you need to get authorisation from an official who works at the ministry, but any Maldives Luxury Resorts and their help desks can walk you through how to garb and be polite when you do ask for the authorization.

Where it is

As it is on Male, you will have to hire a speedboat to access the mosque if you are put up at a resort like Baros Maldives. The exterior of the mosque does not electrify you at a fleeting look as it is mostly enclosed with metal sheets and unattractive bits and pieces. But, once you walk in, you will be in wonder.


Its chic wood carvings will take you back to a period when fine art took years to be finished. The mosque was built to look towards Mecca; as a result, it looks over in the direction of the sunsets day after day and makes for a miraculous sight from its windows.
