“Love this mosque”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2013

Detailed coral carving stones. Amazing architecture. Should be listed as a world heritage venue.
It should be preserved and look after properly.

“A piece of history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2013

In a relatively modern city this is a well-preserved piece of the past.

As others have said non-Muslims can only view the outside and surrounding tombs, however even that gives you a sense of the history of the religion in the Maldives.
Perhaps some further English explanations around the site might be helpful for visitors.

“Amazing architecture”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2013

Really great for architecture lovers with coral carvings. But keep a dollar handy to pay the local who will try and usher you around for a quick buck.
The graves are amazing and the place is real quite though no shade around.

“Make sure to dress appropriately”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2013

This mosque was interesting but certainly doesn't compare to others in the Islamic world. I had to make sure to wear a long skirt and a tshirt so that I wouldn't offend when visiting the mosque.

“Interesting for history buffs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2013

While as a non-Muslim I could only see the outside of this mosque, it was still really interesting to look at this old, beautiful mosque and the tombs outside. The lighthouse looking minaret out the front is also very interesting.
