One can see its beauty at dawn because of the light emitting from the tower that it gives an impression of a chinese temple. And one will understand why is this so when one reads the inscription somewhere in the mosque... It is well taken cared mosque...

Throughout my travels I have visited a handful of mosques. Virtually every one has been enormous. What I liked about this one was that it was a small building situated in a small enclosed (walled) lot giving it an overall intimate feel. Having a Sumatran architectural style as well as influences from Hindu, Chinese, Moorish, English and Portuguese certainly sets... More

The well recorded restoration and preservation effort of this historical building deserves a thumbs up to all parties involved. Though not huge, the mosque is significant to the city of Malacca and is a wonderful site to visit. Keep in mind to observe your manners and clothing just like visiting any other religious sites. Please wear the coverings provided if... More

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.
