King Faisal Mosque in Marawi City, Lanao del Sur

The King Faisal Mosque is located inside Mindanao State University in Marawi City, Lanao del Sur.

The mosque was named after the former King of Saudi Arabia, King Faisal, who supported and financed its construction, as well as the establishment of the Islamic, Arabic and Asian Studies Center inside the campus.

This is one of the must-see destinations when visiting the Islamic City of Marawi.
