I chance upon this mosque while walking along Jonker Street. Did my prayer there. I really love the unique design of its roof and minaret. Very different from the mosques in Singapore. Kampong Kling Mosque was built in 1748. The interior and exterior design has a strong Hindu, Chinese and Malay influence.

The design of the mosque is unique and regular mosque is round. Near to Jonker Street, worth a walk to take photo. Better at night with lights.

Though I am not a muslim myself, I am also fascinated by the religion, it's customs and mosque architecture. There is more to it than just a place of worship, it has a lot history inside the building. I believe a must visit for muslim travellers.

This mosque was built by the Indian Muslim traders in 1748 during the Dutch colonial era. The architectural design is unique and has Sumatran, Chinese, Malay and Hindu/Buddhist style. The minaret resembles a pagoda. There are English and Portugese glazed tiles, Corinthian columns, Moorish cast iron lamp post, and a wooden pulpit with Hindu and Chinese carvings. One of the...

The tower loods nice. The mosque itself is small and not so exciting. When we came there was no one there so we could not get Some background info. Despite that iT is an easy walk in when exploring old Malacca. Its not so far from the Chinese temple.
