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.

Five times each day one can enjoy the exotic sounds of the call to prayers from Kampung Kling Mosque.

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

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
