Golden Mosque Manila - Philippine


Golden Mosque Manila – Philippine
The Masjid Al-Dahab, popularly known as the Golden Mosque, is the religious center of Muslims in Metro Manila. It was built in 1976 and was so called because of the color of its dome. It is located in Quiapo, which is also the center of devotion of Christians.

The structure was built under the regime of President Ferdinand Marcos under the supervision of First Lady Imelda Marcos for the state visit of Libyan strongman Muammar al-Gaddafi. The purpose was to help broker peace with the Muslim separatists in Mindanao. The visit did not happen; instead, it was the First Lady who visited Libya. The mosque remained and eventually became the largest mosque and the center of Islam in Manila.;
