We only walk around the perimeter. The mosque is beautiful. We heard it is one of the oldest mosque in Georgetown. As the prayers are on-going, we did not enter. Good to come by after the street arts walk.

Visited here after long walk and amazed by the view. They provide tour for non-moslems who want to understand about the history behind. The place was surprisingly filled with cool breeze , nice to stop here to relax a while.

During my visit to Penang, I passed by the mosque. It looks beautiful and clean from outside. I didn’t step in as I was wearing shorts. I managed to snap some photos.
