The Old Friday mosque or Hukuru Miskiiy is a beautiful mosque that is made up of coral stones and three different kinds of wood. It dates back to 1658 and was made by Sultan Ibrahim. The walls in the mosque are embedded with corals and are intricately carved with Arabic inscriptions. Interestingly, the mosque was built on the site of an old temple that faced towards west. Due to this, the worshippers have to face the corner of the mosque so that they can face towards Mecca. The square minaret dating from 1675 overlooks the mosque. There is also an old cemetery in the premises of the mosque.

Tombstones with rounded tops are for females, those with pointy tops are for males and those featuring gold-plated lettering are the graves of former sultans. Respectably-dressed non-Muslims are welcome to walk around the graveyard; you don’t require permission for this.
