It has a square tower several level high , and an open space for prayers. Located on Jalan Hang Lekiu and Jalan Tukang Emas, near the Cheng Hoong Teng temple ,and Harmony Street. We took... More

An elegant, and unusually styled mosque with a low square-sided muezzin tower and an open-sided platform space for the main prayer area. A pleasant place to take a look around - only takes a few minutes. And this mosque is opposite the wonderfully traditional Low Yong Mow Chinese restaurant!

The place just fit for its purpose, nothing negative. The area is peaceful and welcome visitors around the clock. However, appropriate dress code applies before entering the facility.

This mosque is located along a street which houses a Chinese temple (Chen Hoon Teng Temple, said to be the oldest Chinese temple in Malaysia), a Mosque, and an Indian temple. This historic mosque was built in 1748, and rebuilt in brick in 1872. It's built in a typical Malacca mosque style, with ornate carvings and tiles. Definitely worth a... More

I brought my Nigerian friend for a tour around Melaka and we stumbled upon this mosque. We arrived around 3pm, between the noon (Zuhr) and the afternoon (asr) prayer so it was rather empty. We were at first reluctant to go in but we were called upon by a lady (I believe her name was Zainab) who was a volunteer... More

We were pleasantly surprised when we stepped into this mosque and it was like stepping back in time. The architecture is very different to other mosques that we saw with Chinese and other influences. The ablution facilities are very different to modern mosques where you take ablution before performing prayers using a jug from water in a small pool area.... More
