This more than 100 years old Mosque is without a doubt one of the, if no the most beautiful Mosque in Malaysia. It's located just outside the city center. It's not always possible to enter the Mosque but even the outside of the Mosque and the location are worth exploring.

No doubt Ubudiah Mosque is the most beautiful mosque in Malaysia. If you happen to be driver from either Ipoh or Kuala Lumpur heading north (Penang, Alor Setar, Kangar, Thailand). Please do stop here. Might as well visit the old palace nearby.
