If you are on maafushi island you will not miss any of its attractions since it is so small . You will anyway find them even if you are not looking for them. This one is good one in the middle of the island.

This oldest mosque in Male was built with coral and limestone. Outside the building lied mausoleum of the previous Sultan and their relatives.Inside the building is the magnificent decoration made from wood. Truly worth to visit once in lifetime.
