Being the state religion of the Maldives, the Islamic Center in Male is one of the country's most famous and beautiful marvels of architecture. Situated in the northern fringes of the capital city, close to the Hulhule ferry point and neighbouring the Republic Square (Jumhooree Maidan), the grand building is the perfect example of Islamic architecture.
The colossal structure is one of the most visited landmarks in the country, and its remarkable presence dominates the city's skyline, thanks to its massive golden dome and a graceful minaret as its companion. It is the spot of several conference halls and an Islamic library. The centre also houses numerous offices, most importantly the Ministry of Islamic Affairs. It is believed that up to 5,000 people can be welcomed in the premises at once. The building lights up during Friday prayer sessions as thousands of worshippers gather to offer their devotion.
