Muhiyaddeen Jumma Mosque is a Muslim place of worship situated in Gandara in Matara District, Sri Lanka. 

History
Although the mosque is said to have been erected in 1940 on the site of a much older one, no such traces can be established (Bohingamuwa, 2005). The present mosque building has been built very recently.
