King Salman Mosque being constructed in capital Male' during my visit there. After the construction of the mosque is completed the mosque will be handed over to the Islamic Ministry by the Planning Ministry.

Spred over a total area of 41,500 square feet, the beautiful mosque can accommodate 10,000 people simultaneously. Four elevators have been installed at the mosque for easy access. The ground, first and second floor of the five-story building is allocated for praying. While the ground of the mosque has the capacity to accommodate 6000 worshipers, 4000 people can simultaneously use the first and second floors of the mosque. The second floor is especially for female worshipers, it has a separate entrance with special washrooms for women. The third floor of the mosque has a large library and an auditorium. The fourth floor has a part of the auditorium and a lobby while the fifth floor has a multi-purpose hall.

King Salman Mosque is being built under a grant aid provided by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. While the total cost of the project is unclear, the mosque stand on the outskirt of Male' city overlooking the Sinamale' Bridge.
