Mosques in Manila: Here’s Where to Pray

In a major city like Manila in the Philippines, Muslims only constitute 6% of the population. Obviously it’s not a high percentage, but the country is evolving to be more culturally diverse and tolerant.

In fact, despite Muslims being the minority, mosques and praying spaces are scattered everywhere! Wherever your touristy adventures take you, you’re bound to come across a place to perform your daily prayers in comfort and peace in Manila!

The life of the city is at the centre of Manila. This is a city that is so full of history and nostalgia that brings life to the locals and tourists alike. Take a stroll down Manila Baywalk and enjoy the breeze of the sea.

Don’t miss out on a touristy day where you drop by tourist attractions like the Fort Santiago, Manila Cathedral and San Agustin Church. Get an insight to Manila’s colonial years and visit the San Agustin Museum, where it used to be a monastery that was wrecked during the second world war but was rebuilt to provide information and knowledge on the historical events of the country.
