We drove past as part of our city tour and we were astounded at the size and detail of the building and the size of the cemetry, very impressive, worth a visit!

The mosque is quite nice especially for its position and the cemetery on the hill. If you are in Kuching it is quite nice to see it.

The District mosque of Kuching which is set out in a remarkable location overlooking the river and surrounded by a cemetery, located conveniently in downtown and fairly easy to get to. Inside of the mosque is fairly plain and simple with very nice views of the river from the inside and outside. The Mosque needs urgent attention, the paintwork needs... More

A must see place, gives some understanding of the differences between Malaysian and middle eastern Islamic architecture. To gain a fuller understanding though the must see place is the Islamic Museum in KL.

I have been to this mosque since my schooling days way back 1983. Centrally located and nicely built. In front of the mosque is the Muslim cemetery. View onto the river is just superb especially at dawn.

The Mosque was built to replace the old one, and judging by pictures of the previous structure is not an improvement, except that it holds more people. Worth no more than a walk past really, thought the adjoining cemetry is interesting. Right by the bus station at the end of India Street.

Lovely mosque, was fortunate enough to pray inside it. Had a non Muslim friend with us who was also allowed in during the prayer time. The view from the windows onto the river are gorgeous make sure u have a look .

Wander down the pedestrianized India Street, turn left and "wow" you are facing Kuching's most beautiful mosque. On a rise above the river bank and surrounded by a Muslim cemetery, it is a sight not to be missed while walking through compact old town Kuching. Adjacent to the mosque grounds is an old ship yard from the colonial era that... More
