The Dimaukom Mosque or Pink Mosque (Arabic: مسجد ديماوكوم‎) is a mosque in Datu Saudi Ampatuan, Maguindanao, the Philippines. The mosque's construction was financed by then-Mayor Samsudin Dimaukom under the administration of President Noynoy Aquino. The land where the mosque was built was a property of the mayor's family. The mosque was painted pink to symbolize peace and love and was built by workmen to symbolize unity and inter-faith brotherhood.[1][2]
