We got a guided tour which was nice. Normally you can´t get in unless you are a muslim. Nice airy building with a big room for worship. But nothing more to see.

it is a good opportunity to take a glimpse of the everyday maldivian lives. I observed how grand the structure in a small country. Take advantage to buy souvenirs.
