Hukuru Miski is an almost century old mosque built with coral rubble masonry, timber and lime plaster. It is of the most significant mosques in the island being one of the first multi-story building on the island. The mosque served as the only Friday prayer mosque in the island for years.
The current mosque was built on the order of Al-Sultan Muhammed Shamsuddeen III during the time he spent on exile in Fuvahmulah in 1930’s after demolishing an existing mosque that dated back to 17th century.
The cemetery within the mosque compound is the burial site of some of the most important figures in Maldivian history. This includes the grave of Prince Hassan Inzuddeen; the son of Al-Sultan Muhammed Shamsuddeen III and Samiya Faashana Kilege, a royal who formed his own breakaway kingdom.
