Grand Friday Mosque, Male

#2 of 8 in Historic Sites in Maldives
Religious Site · Tourist Spot
Appreciate the exquisite calligraphy adorning the walls of Grand Friday Mosque, the largest religious structure in the Maldives capable of receiving nearly 5,000 worshipers. The intricate carvings, decadent chandeliers, and hand-woven carpets imbue the mosque with an air of historical grandeur. Since its opening in 1984, the white-marble mosque has dominated Male's skyline with its golden dome. Dress respectfully for you visit, making sure your legs and shoulders are covered before you enter.
