On the other hand, the Pink Mosque or the Masjid Dimaukom is in Datu Saudi Ampatuan, province of Maguindanao del Sur. The entire mosque is covered with stunning pink to symbolize peace and love. Also, this color is for unity and brotherhood. The structure was built by the combined hands of Muslims and Christians to fulfil its meaning.

The Masjid Tulay or Tulay Central Mosque is considered the oldest and the largest mosque in Sulu province. Established in 1884 but was destroyed in 1974 during the war between the government and the MNLF. Rebuilt in 2001. According to articles on Google, the first Filipinos who adopted Islam were the Tausugs. This is when Karim ul-Makhdum (a Muslim missionary) came to Sulu in 1380. This Masjid is situated in the center of Jolo.
