|About these ratings|
Hukuru Miskiiy, or "Old Friday Mosque," has sat in Male' since 1656. When you stand outside of it and look at the less-than-spectacular façade, you might think: "What's all the commotion about?" You'll have to venture inside for the answer. Displaying incredible craftsmanship, the interior contains intricate woodwork and exquisite inlays.
Although admission is free, non-Muslim visitors are required to get permission before entering. Visiting hours are unclear, but you're best chances to get inside are Sunday through Thursday as religious services are conducted on Friday and Saturday.
