Masjid al-Dahab or The Golden Mosque is situated in the predominantly Muslim section of the Quiapo district in Manila, Philippines, and is considered the largest mosque in Metro Manila. The Golden Mosque is so-named because of its dome is painted in shining gold. Under the supervision of former Philippine First Lady Imelda Marcos, it was constructed in 1976 for the visit of Libya's President Muammar al-Gaddafi, although his visit was cancelled. It now serves many in Manila's Muslim community, and is especially full during Jumuah prayers on a Friday. The minaret is now completely rusted and the dome is partly rusted. However, renovations are taking place on the mosque.
