The Mosque situated in a serene ensemble between the Sultan Park and the Muleeaage can be attributed to Muhammed-ul-Adil (Dharumavantha Rasgefaanu), the first Sultan of the Maldives.

Dharumavantha Rasgefaanu Mosque is a one-room structure measuring approx. 13 x 6.6 m with a 1.8 m wide covered veranda in the front, and there is a well inside the campus for drawing water for ablution.
