President Rodrigo Roa Duterte unveiled the marker of the newly constructed Jameo Mindanao Al-Islamie or the Grand Mosque in the Islamic City of Marawi, Lanao Del Sur.

Considered as the biggest house of worship in Marawi City, the Grand Mosque was completely destroyed during the siege in 2017 between the government military forces and the Maute terrorist group.

Reconstruction of the Grand Mosque came after the liberation of Marawi City on October 17, 2017. President Duterte issued Administrative Order No. 3 creating the Task Force Bangon Marawi (TFBM) to facilitate the rehabilitation, recovery and reconstruction efforts in the City after the devastation caused by the five (5) month conflict.
