This is a very old mosque in male built using limestone collected from coral reefs. The craftsmanship of the ancient Maldivians clearly shown In this work of art. Females also allowed to enter here provided they are not wearing any revealing clothes.

If you are interested about this old mosque, then you should visit it. I didn't go inside, but also from the outside it was an interesting sight. Don't forget to visit the House of the Maldivian Prime Minister which is directly on the opposite road, in front of the Old Friday Mosque.

A must visit if you are in the capital city Male', The site has a 17th century cemetery of sultans and important figures adjacent to it. The site also has a coral stone minaret. It was built about 350 years ago. The interior of the mosque contains one of the most important woodcarvings and laquerwork in the country.

Male does not have many historical sites and the Old Griday Mosque clearly is the most important. Dating back to 1656 this still operating mosque is delicately carved out of old coral stone with some beautiful and intricate designs. Unfortunately, the building gets somewhat lost underneath the corrugated steel structure which was installed to protect the mosque from the elements (one would have hoped something more elegant would have been designed). The mosque is surrounded by a very old Cemetary and some simple gardens. Access to the mosque interior is possible but (1) you better be properly attired and (2) you need permission.

According to our guide, this dates back about 400 years. Out there is a water well used for washing before prayers and there was on the floor a jug at the end of a long pole used to draw water. Interesting and again worth a visit.

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.

I found this site at UNESCO waiting list tentative heritage site before I really visit this site where it is a unique little mosque with rich cultural and history of Maldives.

Tips : Visit Male with a walking tour around the central where the souvenir shops located, Then walk towards the independence square of maldives. Visit the Islamic center and then the Hukuru Miskiiy is in the middle of the city (behind Trader Hotel).

This mosque is an important part of the history of Maldives. It is easy to find in the city of Male. Inside of the Mosque area there are an old cemetary from the 17th century for the Royal. If you like history, this site is worth a visit, just be sure that you are properly dressed.

From the point of architecture, it is one of the most important buildings of Male. It has also a very impressive interior. Also corals were used to build it. As it is still in use as a mosque, you have to keep some rules of course (closed shoulders and women closed knees) and be respectful to the religion, but this you should do when you visit any religious monument. People are friendly and help you, when you ask or you want something to know. I think it is a must for every Male visitor.
