In 1976, when secessionist threat in the Muslim provinces of southern Philippines was most acute, Mrs. Marcos felt that the people of Manila, far removed from the conflict, needed a highly visible symbol of the Filipinos’ Muslim heritage which also underscore the oneness of the Filipino people, whatever their creed.

With funds from the Cultural Center of the Philippines, Mrs. Marcos commissioned architect Jorge Ramos to design the building.  Construction proceeded at the legendary pace set by Mrs. Marcos’ other projects, and the mosque-Masjid ng Maynila- was opened to the public in April 1977.
