Discover Hukuru Miskiiy Mosque

The Hukuru Miskiiy Mosque, in Malé, is as impressive as the Grand Mosque. Located along Medu Ziraye Magu, it dates back to the 17th century. Built with coral blocks, it boasts an ornate interior decorated with teak and sandalwood panels. Unlike the Grand Mosque, it does not face the Holy Land (towards Mecca), as it was erected on the ruins of a solar temple facing eastwards. Entrance to this mosque is for Muslims only, but you can seek permission to visit it outside prayer hours.
