Magnificent building in the heart of town

Always enjoy visiting places of worship, regardless of the religion. This masjid is quite striking with its pink and gold coloring. Worth a look for the architectural style alone.

Saw this mosque while on city tour and it is near India street (famous for cheap shopping). Worth no more than a walk past really.

We stopped for Maghrib prayer. The facilities are great. Parking also available in the mosque compound. The mosque also very easy to locate nearby the waterfront.

The Mosque is of impressive architecture. We didn't actually enter the mosque but appreciating it from the outside and to walk around the vicinity is great enough. The day and night scene of the mosque are equally stunning!

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.

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.
