wonderful mosque on a hill near city-center of Kuala Kangsa. On the way to Sultan palace. As it is so often in Malaysia, there is no public transport upstairs, one must walk or take a taxi

Ubudiah mosque is a very beautiful mosque, with five minarets and a big golden dome. Situated in the middle of a large garden, the mosque is very well taken care off, inside and outside.

Situated on a hill and easily to reach from the town-center of Kuala Kangsar on a 30 minutes walk this mosque is truly a highlight in Perak. It was built in 1913 in moorish architectural style and especially in the afternoon with the setting sun the golden cupolas start gleaming in a magnificent way. The royal graveyard is just next...

Ubudiah Mosque which was opened in 1917 is located in royal town of Kuala Kangsar, Perak (which is also my hometown :) lucky me..). I would say it is one of the beautiful mosque in Malaysia with unique octagonal shape compared to others. I was made to understand that it took 4 years to complete the installation of the mosque...

We stopped in Kuala Kangsar coming from Kota Bharu and on the way to Taiping. The stop was well worth because the town is very peaceful and green and we could easily visit the mosque, the Galeri and few other colonial buildings in a short time. The mosque has a convenient parking just in front and it takes a few... More

I like mosques. Malaysia has built many in recent years. All the big old and new ones are spectacularily grand.

Kuala Kangsar is a very interesting place in between Ipoh and Taiping, well worth visiting for its very nice mosque (surrounded by pretty traditional house), an delicate old wooden palace as well as a few colonial buildings ( school, etc....) and a nice kids garden.

Amazing mosque, and you are alone there. Take a closer look to the cemetery next door. Consider taking a taxi on the way back
