“Iconic grandeur yet it is small inside”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2010

The mosque is an icon not only to Kuala Kangsar but to Malaysia as well. Built by British architects, it do reflected the more common mosque architecture built around that time. Go there during non-praying time since the parking space is available. Do respect the Muslims attending the pray but ask permission since I'm not sure is it ok for non-Muslim to enter the place or not. The mosque look big from the outside yet the hall is small compared to other mosque I went to and less adorned. But it do command a great view of the river & the town from one of its point. Check out also an abandoned mansion right next to the mosque since it reflect quite a unique architecture of the state.
