Hukuru Miskiiy (Old Friday Mosque) Reviews
대통령 궁 맞으면에 위치한 모스크입니다. 바로 앞에 큰 탑이 제일 먼저 보이고, 그 안으로 특별한 효과(?)가 있다는 우물과 왕들과 귀족의 무덤이 있습니다.내부에는 들어가지 않았고, 시티투어 중에 들리기 좋습니다. more »The presidential palace is a mosque located in the jolt. The first big tower in front of you, and a special effect in it (?) There are wells and tombs of kings and nobles. It's not inside, and it's good to hear during a city tour.
马累最著名古迹，是这个岛国最古老的清真寺，位于市区的核心地带，旁边是苏丹公园、总统府、星期五清真寺。马累市内其实没有什么像样的景点，这座用珊瑚建成的寺庙可以说是数一数二的了。古清真寺包括寺庙、宣礼塔、陵园等部分，进入寺庙有着装要求，而且不许拍照。旁边的陵园安葬有历代的国王，在闹市中显得十分幽静。如果你到马代度假，有时间的话一定要安排一次马累游览，因为这是了解这个印度洋岛国历史人民风情的宝贵机会。那... more »Male's most famous monument is the island's oldest mosque, located in the heart of the city, next to The Sultan Park, the presidential palace, and the Friday Mosque. There are no decent attractions in male, and this coral-built temple is one of the few. The ancient mosque includes temples, shrines, mausoleums and other parts, entering the temple has dress code, and is not allowed to take photographs. The mausoleum next to it is buried by the kings of all generations, and it seems very quiet in the city. If you're on holiday in Maddy, be sure to arrange a tour of Male if you have time, as this is a valuable opportunity to learn about the historic people of this Indian Ocean island. Then this ancient mosque must be the first stop on the tour of Male.
