This Mosque is the oldest in the Maldives, made from coral it is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site cultural list due to its ornate structure. It is much smaller than I imagined and the intricate carvings on the building are impressive. You need permission to enter the mosque but this is normally easily obtained as long as you are espectfully dressed, arms and legs covered and a headscarf for women.

The Old Friday Mosque is the oldest in Male. Although quite small, the mosque was beautifully carved and built with indigenous material of Maldives: coral.

The Old Friday Mosque, Hukuru Minsky, is still an attraction to be seen today. Built in 1656, inside it preserves a panel dating back to the 13th century. It is above all the walls decorated with coral inlays and the minaret from the 17th century that leave you speechless.
