Lonely Planet review for Golden Mosque
The Golden Mosque was constructed in 1976 as something of a welcoming gift for the Libyan leader Muammar al-Gaddafi, although his scheduled visit never happened. This is still the city’s largest mosque, and today it serves the growing Muslim community that has settled by the thousands in Quiapo. Visitors who explore the compound often find themselves being guided by an associate of the mosque; it’s customary to leave a small donation if you, too, are given a tour.
