Kampung Kling Mosque really stands out along Harmony Street (Jalan Tukang Emas). Its nice to see Hindu, Muslim and Buddhist places of worship all so close together. This was built in 1748 and is a unique mix of styles - the minaret bears a stong resemblance to a pagoda. Inside there are gold topped Corinthian columns and a Victorian chandelier.... More

This mosque can be found in Harmony street right alongside the Hindu temple. It is not the most elaborate mosque I have seen, but still worth a visit inside. Remember to wear appropriate clothing and take your time wandering around as there are many beautiful things to see.

Unfortunately during our visit to Malacca, we found the Kampung Kling Mosque closed for restoration so were unable to visit inside to see the interesting architectural design and the pagoda shaped minaret for which this mosque is somewhat famed. Kampung Kling is located on Jalan Tukang Emas, what is called Harmony Street due the close proximity of this mosque to... More

The actual mosque is currently closed for major renovations. Seeing the old tower was interesting, but unless you just happen to already be walking down this street, I wouldn't bother seeking it out.

Finding a Chinese Pagoda like "building" located within a Mosque territory is so amazing ! Another interesting point is that the temple is just next to the Jonker Walk, where the Chinese are mainly Buddhism dominant. The acceptance of people with different religious belief to live together in harmony is observed.

This mosque is 150 years old and has a unique 3-tiered pyramidal roof and 6-tiered Chinese pagoda like minaret. You can walk inside of the little garden and sort of see the inside of the mosque which you can't enter unless you are a Muslim (doesn't seem fair considering we allow people of all religions to enter our Christian churches)

This temple is that it is located right beside a Chinese temple and an Indian temple. It is around the vicinity of Jonker Walk. Good to go in and take a look when you are there. However when visiting this mosque, remember to wear long pants and long sleeves attire where possible.
