My father in law's dad and other family members are buried in the royal graveyard by this mosque so we visit this area each time we come to Malaysia. Kuala Kangsar is a beautiful little town and this mosque makes it ever more so. The gold dome is striking and the mosque is very photogenic. I have not been inside.... More

i have visited this place with my friends. If you thought the outside was pretty, wait until you see the magnificent detail inside. The historical background in advance will help you to understand this site before visiting. Truly a site to be seen. The area is clean and safe.

Although it is only for muslims I took a respectful look inside at midday prayer time and I was not made to feel at all unwelcome. The main features are on the outside. This place is stunning and is well worth while seeing.

Only muslims are allowed into this majestic mosque. It's located after Sultan Azlan Shah gallery. The mosque was designed by Arthur Benison Hubback, a government architect who is notably credited for the design of the Ipoh railway station and the Kuala Lumpur railway station.(source Wikipedia)

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. A kind guardian gave us some clothes so we can enter into the sacred area, till the border of the prayer zone (the border is a... More

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
