The Golden Mosque of Manila and Libya's President Muammar al-Gaddafi

The Golden Mosque (or Masjid Ginto) was constructed in 1976 for the visit of Libya's President Muammar al-Gaddafi, although his visit ended up being cancelled. The minaret is now completely rusted and the dome is partly rusted. Shall Gaddafi come back?

Hmmm... that I didn't know we have this mosque in Manila. Hope the people could still save it, clean it up and preserve it.
